Can we convert a .sdf file to .urdf. I need to use the file in MoveIt. But it accepts only .urdf files.

Any other method regarding how I can use my .sdf file in MoveIt will also be welcome.

No we can't. Have a look at link

I think the only way is to start with URDF and convert it to SDF.

Some additional Info that might be useful

  • Gazebo will continue to support URDF info.
  • Also, xacro helps you to systematically develop your robot using macros, which I think is not there in SDF. So, it is not a bad idea that you start with URDF
