Hey guys, is there a way to show the axis of every joint of my robot?
here is my code:
dhparams = [
0 0 d1 0
a1 pi/2 0 0
a2 0 0 0
a3 0 0 0
0 pi/2 d5 0
IPA 0 0 0 ] ;
robot = robotics.RigidBodyTree;
L1 = robotics.RigidBody('L1');
jnt1 = robotics.Joint('jnt1','revolute');
L2 = robotics.RigidBody('L2');
jnt2 = robotics.Joint('jnt2','fixed');
L3 = robotics.RigidBody('L3');
jnt3 = robotics.Joint('jnt3','revolute');
L4 = robotics.RigidBody('L4');
jnt4 = robotics.Joint('jnt4','revolute');
L5 = robotics.RigidBody('L5');
jnt5 = robotics.Joint('jnt5','revolute');
L6 = robotics.RigidBody('L6');
jnt6 = robotics.Joint('jnt6','revolute');
setFixedTransform(jnt1,dhparams(1,:),'dh');
L1.Joint = jnt1;
addBody(robot,L1,'base');
setFixedTransform(jnt2,dhparams(2,:),'dh');
setFixedTransform(jnt3,dhparams(3,:),'dh');
setFixedTransform(jnt4,dhparams(4,:),'dh');
setFixedTransform(jnt5,dhparams(5,:),'dh');
setFixedTransform(jnt6,dhparams(6,:),'dh');
L2.Joint = jnt2;
L3.Joint = jnt3;
L4.Joint = jnt4;
L5.Joint = jnt5;
L6.Joint = jnt6;
addBody(robot,L2,'L1');
addBody(robot,L3,'L2');
addBody(robot,L4,'L3');
addBody(robot,L5,'L4');
addBody(robot,L6,'L5');
show(robot);
When I use show(robot), I want it to show me the axis and origin of every joint, is it possible?

You can see it if you zoom in, or you can divide the lengths in your DH-matrix with som factor to make the whole robot smaller.
But is there any way to make the axis bigger???
