Re: Wrong body orientation when loading URDF

My current version is 3.3.0 and I also tried with 3.2.2 both on Linux 64. The results are similar and wrong. Another thing that I noted about URDF is that in my file I have different mesh files for visual and collision nodes. Basically collision in a simplified mesh to accelerate the computation. Th...

Wrong body orientation when loading URDF

Hello, I have a urdf model which I load using the shipped plugin. For some reasons the loaded model is not the way it should be. If I load the same model in Gazebo or Rviz, the model is okay, however, in vrep some shapes/bodies have wrong orientation. The only thing that I changed from Gazebo to Rvi...

Reset scene

Hello,

It would be cool to have button in the file menu to reset the scene. It should basically close the current scene (without saving) and load it again (at its last saved version).
It is particularly useful when users are testing something in a try-and-fail fashion.

Thanks,
Pouya.

Setting geometry of a shape

Hello, I have a shape, say a non pure sphere, in my scene. I would like to change some geometric properties of this shape. For instance, changing it's diameter along an axis. Is it possible? I noted there is a simGetShapeGeomInfo function that retrieves such information but I couldn't find one to se...

Loading plugin from scene or on demand

Hello, I use v-rep in different projects and one aspect that bugs me a lot is they way that plugins load upon v-rep launch. Say that I have two projects, Prj1 and Prj2 with two shared objects libv_repExtPRJ1.so and libv_repExtPRJ2.so. When I work on Prj1 I have to remove Prj2 shared library from v-r...

Mouse shortcut for Position/Orientation dialogue

In the version that I have middle drag rotates the camera (very annoying, particularly with touchpad or a bad mouse) and hen...

Activate/Inactivate IK element from plugin

Hello, Assume I've created multiple IK groups via graphical user interface. Is it possible to inactivate and activate them programmatically through plugin APIs? There is a simSetIkElementProperties function but I doesn't provide this functionality. One workaround that comes to mind is to create and ...

Is it possible to make Bill walk backward?

Hello,

The title is pretty self-explanatory. I tried to put the target in the "path planning Bill" slightly behind him but he makes a turn. I also tried to give a negative velocity to "walking Bill" but it didn't work.
Is there any way to achieve this?

Cheers,
Pouya.

V-REP_PRO_EDU_V3_2_2_64_Linux crashes on start due to ROS

Hello. I just downloaded V-REP_PRO_EDU_V3_2_2_64_Linux and I noted there is a new shared object called libv_repExtRos.so. It needs roscore to be executed already otherwise v-rep crashes. For me the workaround was simple: Move it to another directory that v-rep doesn't look for shared objects in it. ...

If you are going to make platform-independent plugin, by way of using gcc, please consider few notes. First, gcc that comes wit...
