Do you want to add export on Onshape?


#1

‘Onshape is the first and only full-cloud 3D CAD system that lets everyone on a design team simultaneously works together using a web browser, phone or tablet. Create complex parts, assemblies, and detailed drawings all within your web browser.’

I think that Onshape is fantastic collaboration tool for ROS users when make the robot model on ROS. So we submit improvement request (add export option) to Onshape community (https://onshape.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/210547168-Export-Collada-file-type). Please go this URL and click the follow button and vote button :slight_smile:

You may want to add comment to Corporate person as it’s not sufficient to use only geometry export using ROS. ROS needs both geometry and its color?


#3

We need its color for viewing robot on RViz (visualization) tool. http://wiki.ros.org/rviz

Goooooooooood news from Onshape official :slight_smile:

a bit off-topic maybe, but ROS ultimately uses assimp to load meshes (or at least RViz does). You should be able to use any of the formats assimp supports, besides STL, Collada and ogre formats.
