This package contains the description resources for the qb SoftHand Research and qb SoftHand2 Research devices. It includes the urdf/xacro model of the hands with their simplified meshes and their configuration setup.

Launch files

The single launch file in this package is a simple test to verify that everything is well configured.


This launch file calls the template description_bringup with the default settings to visualize the desired qb SoftHand Research in rviz (and nothing more).

roslaunch qb_hand_description qb_hand.launch

If it does not bringup an rviz node with the qbhand loaded inside, something is not working as expected and we recommend to check your configuration (cf. Robots/qbhand).
