[ROSject] of the week: How to Open a SolidWorks Model in Gazebo?

This week, we would like to share with you a ROS project prepared by Miguel Angel Rodriguez, a member of The Construct Team, on how to open a SolidWorks model in Gazebo, which contains all the code needed. In this case, an example is given in this video: on how to import a Fish Robot Model in SolidWorks to Gazebo. We will create the URDF, associate the meshes, and add the control. This will be done for a simplified geometric version and for a complete 3D mesh version.

You can get the whole code, simulation and notebook with instructions (everything running off-the-shelf), by clicking on this link.

Let us know if you are missing any feature in the project or if you would like to contribute to make it better.
