Dual-Arm Robot Controller

Hi, is there any way I can control Baxter in Isaac Sim Via Lula Robot Description Editor or other ways?

I want to use it to get its kinematics, however it seems that there is no Dual-arm Robot in examples.

the console shows:
2024-01-24 03:27:28 [2,573,205ms] [Error] [carb.events.python] IndexError: list index out of range

We do not currently support any control strategies for dual-armed robots.

The only path would be to use RMPflow to individually control the two robot arms using two different robot_description.yaml files for the left and right arms. This has been tested out internally, but it takes a good amount of effort and know-how, and there is currently not tooling available to make it easier.

@arudich Thank you.
I’ve controlled it via ROS Bridge though its not easier either.
