Dear all, I see that Gazebo 8 implemented a GUI to apply a force or torque to a link.

However, there is no box to specify for how much time. Given the extremely high values I have to select to have a significant disturbance on my robot, I imagine the force/torque are applied for one step iteration (1 ms in my case).

Is there a way to set also the time interval for the applied force/torque?

Yes, the force is applied for 1ms. There is currently no way to set the duration on the dialog, that would be a nice feature to have.

Or just apply the force/torque through the mouse? There have many simulators use this way to add disturbance.
