Phobos is an open-source plugin for Blender, making use of its powerful 3D modeling functionality to simplify editing URDF and SMURF robot models. By fully exploiting Blender’s existing data structures and scene objects, and extending them where necessary, Phobos simplifies the workflow for building even complex robot representations. Phobos is hosted on GitHub:
