I am working on a project but I am stuck with determining the joint rotation axis with my own built model.

How do I determine the joint axis to let the robot rotate about a point? Just like the human knee joint.

Below shows part of my urdf file,

Please help me, thanks a lot!

xyz = roll - pitch - yaw; a knee I would asume is pitch

<axis xyz="0 1 0"/>

<joint name=Joint_A" type="revolute">

<axis xyz="0 1 0"/>
...
</joint>
