Hi everyone,

I'm having trouble loading environments and objects through the rviz moveit plugin GUI. My question is whether there is a way to specify a text environment for the plugin outside the GUI (maybe through the launch file?).

Thanks in advance

The rviz moveit plugin GUI reads the Robot Description from the /robot_description rosparam by default. You can change this to another rosparam in the gui if need be. Also, be sure that the planning scene topic is correct.

Please see the tutorial for using the rviz GUI for more info.
