I have a collada file for my robot and no a urdf. I want use the planning_description_wizard to use arm navigation after. I know, I can't change my collada in a urdf but it's possible to use the collada for it ?

I want use this tutorial: But this function no works with collada file: $ roslaunch planning_environment planning_description_configuration_wizard.launch urdf_package:=<your urdf="" package="" name=""> urdf_path:=<relative path="">

You should be able to load the collada file directly into the wizard, as all it does is call the urdf parser with the file and the urdf parser supports collada. Specify the package location and path like you would for a urdf and post output if it fails to load.

Thank for your answer. It works to load but I have this error:

$ [ERROR] [1339657820.330176330, 1339657820.323705911]: Target Node visual1/node_joint0_axis0 NOT found!!!

I can add kinematic chain normally and generate the file. But when I have a error writed:

$ [ERROR] [1339657820.330176330, 1339657820.323705911]: Target Node visual1/node_joint0_axis0 NOT found!!! I can see correctly the model on rviz.

When I use this command: roslaunch main_withHands_arm_navigation planning_components_visualizer.launch I have several errors:

$ [ERROR] [1339657799.473800160,1339657799.471926927]: Target Node visual1/node_joint0_axis0 NOT found!!!

$ [ERROR] [1339657798.033854584, 1339657798.028127908]: Could not initialize planning groups from the the param server

And I can see in rviz a white robot with all part in the same origin !

I have the same problem with the command: roslaunch orrosplanning collada_rviz_display.launch model:=nodel.dae But it's only in a computer. A other works perfectly... It's possible that missing a package like openrave_planning (stacks) ?

In a other computer launch planning description wizard doesn't work and I don't no why: waiting... waiting... [planning_description_configuration_wizard-3] process has died [pid 18741, exit code -11]. log files: /home/vision/.ros/log/38b33e2e-b5ff-11e1-9244-00187d19c997/planning_description_configuration_wizard-3*.log

I have reinstalled ros and now I have this error on the two computers. I don't understand why ? I tried with a other collada created with a urdf of LWR(Kuka) but it's the same thing. The urdf of the kuka works correctly. I have really need of your help...
