pls solve the error message

Please provide more information.
Which exercise are you trying to solve?
Can you please paste the code of the urdf_to_graphiz mira_simple.urdf ?

I suppose you mean in unit 1. Where we can visualize the URDF like a tree graph, right?
I tried the commands and seemed to work:

Check that the urdf is like this: mira_simple.urdf

And you executed the commands:

roscd my_mira_description/urdf
urdf_to_graphiz mira_simple.urdf

I’m not sure if you have solved your issue yet but from looking at the error message. It looks like you have a typo in your mira_simple.urdf file. Instead of “cylinder” you wrote “cyclinder”. That should fix the issue.

Hi @acis.ubc,

Great to hear that after fixing the typo “cyclinder” it worked as expected.

I’ve been checking the notebook instructions but I couldn’t find the typo, so maybe it was an isolated case.

In any case, great to know that now works as expected.
