Hi all,

I found in industrial stack/package a ROBOTIQ urdf model, but without a Gazebo description. Is such description exist? how can I create one?

We were in need of this model as well and started converting it to gazebo ourselves. You can do it yourself, following this tutorial: http://gazebosim.org/wiki/Tutorials/1.9/Using_A_URDF_In_Gazebo

Basically, you need to add tags to all links. You need a little knowledge on urdf and xacro: http://wiki.ros.org/xacro

You'll also want to represent the finger's underactuation somehow. A Gazebo plugin would be an option. You would have to determine the efforts for each finger phalanx based on their current state, the actuator effort, and the contact forces.

Have you managed to convert it to gazebo?
