Is it at all possible to run Isaac Sim (e.g. using the .sh file) and then interface with that instance of it using Python to do things like importing URDFs? Currently, the way I am doing it is to have a Python script start up the simulator and then have the same script get the URDF interface, parse the file, and load in the model, etc. Is the first method possible?
@wchen Inter-process python communication isn’t possible without integrating your own communication layer.
There are three ways to import urdf’s currently:
- from the GUI
- from the python interface in the script editor
- from the python interface in a native python application.
With the last method it might be possible to set up a custom server->client interface via python that can handle urdf import requests
