denso_robot_ros package provides an URDF model for VS060 and an associated MoveIt configuration package as a standard component. To control other robot types, do the following process.

Downloading WINCAPS III

With ROSConverter tool (shipped with WINCAPS III), convert a newly created WINCAPS III project into a robot definition file. You can find ROSConverter tool in the WINCAPS III Ver. 3.55.0 or later. You can download the latest WINCAPS III from here (logon required).
*If you already have the WINCAPS III Ver. 3.58.0(07/08/2019) or later, you can skip this process.

Creating a WINCAPS III project

Create a WINCAPS III project of a controlled robot. The name of a newly created project will be the robot definition file name, so it is recommended to assign a name that indicates a robot type.

Converting a WINCAPS III project into a robot definition file

With ROSConverter tool (located at ${WINCAPS Installer Path}\Unsupported\Tools\ROSConverter\Bin\ROSConverter.exe), convert a newly created WINCAPS III project into a robot definition file. Once the conversion completes successfully, a new "${project name}_description" folder is created. Transfer the new folder to a ROS-used computer.
