I really cant get this to work and after hours of failure Im posting this here. According to package:// URI are resolved to the install/<package_name>/share/<package_name>/ folder ?</package_name></package_name>

I have a URDF File and the absolute filepath works, but the package:// doesnt.

All assets can be found in the install/<package>/share/<package> directory All files are copied into the folder at build time via

<?xml version="1.0"?> data_files=[ ('share/ament_index/resource_index/packages', ['resource/' + package_name]), ('share/' + package_name, ['package.xml']), (os.path.join('share', package_name), glob('launch/*')), (os.path.join('share', package_name), glob('resource/*')) ],

Why cant the package:// URI be resolved or rather, where is it looking for the stl file?
