Configure your arm to use MoveIt!

Description: A tutorial explaining how to (re)run the MoveIt! Setup Assistant to accommodate any particularity of your robot arm.

Tutorial Level: INTERMEDIATE

This tutorial is optional, as we already have configured the turtlebot_arm to work on MoveIt! on the turtlebot_arm_moveit_config package. However, if you made changes to your arm geometry, or you want to do the configuration yourself, this MoveIt! tutorial explains you how to do it. You will see that the generated files differ in some aspects from those on turtlebot_arm_moveit_config package, as we have made some improvements and tweaks. But the generated packages should work out-of-the-box.

Next Tutorial...

The next tutorial, Start playing with your arm and MoveIt!, will show you how to use your turtlebot_arm with MoveIt!.
