MeshCatMechanisms

Build Status codecov.io

MeshCatMechanisms.jl adds support for visualizing mechanisms and robots from RigidBodyDynamics.jl with MeshCat.jl. All geometries are constructed using MechanismGeometries.jl.

Features:

  • Parsing geometry directly from URDF files
  • Animation of robot trajectories from RigidBodyDynamics.jl simulations
  • Live rendering of simulation progress using the OdeIntegrators.OdeResultsSink interface
  • Interactive manipulation of the mechanism configuration using InteractBase.jl

Related Projects

MeshCatMechanisms.jl provides similar functionality to RigidBodyTreeInspector.jl, but is built on top of the lighter-weight MeshCat viewer instead of DrakeVisualizer.jl.
