Details: (ROS Melodic on Ubuntu 18.04. All distros updated to latest)

I exported an urdf package to ubuntu workspace from solidworks. Steps taken: 1. Create a directory 2. Invoke Catkin_make 3. Add urdf files 4. Source setup.bash to .bashrc

When trying to launch a moveit package I am getting two errors: 1. Not able to find the package 2. Robot not being shown in the visualization window

However, 1. Check Urdf is returning link tree. 2. Link tree is also available in the moveit window 3. Rospack profile is listing the path to the package 4. Rospack find is not able to find the package.

Need help/suggestions on what I might be missing or forgetting in this. Thanks

Rospack not being able to find the package seems to be the issue here, not MoveIt. Which package are you unable to find, the MoveIt one or the URDF one? Also, make sure to source ~/.bashrc after modifying it, or just open a new terminal.

Hey, I am unable to find the urdf package in ros workspace. Yup, I have sourced the package to .bashrc. Will try again and update.
