You cannot use Catkin with ROS 2.

Thank you gvdhoom for your answer. For me it is very useful.. I could have worked harder for it. If not..I am trying to make a URDF from fusion 360 and run it. I did not get the exact tutorial for that. Can I have a guide for that?

I would not be able to refer you to one, as I'm not aware of one.
