Here is my xacro file:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>

<robot name="$(arg roboname)" xmlns:xacro="">

  <xacro:property name="PI" value="3.1415926835897931"/> 

<link name="base_link">
         <origin xyz="0 0 1" rpy="0 0 ${-PI/2}"/>
            <box size="2.62 1.3 1.4478"/>
        <origin xyz="0 0 1" rpy="0 0 ${-PI/2}"/>
            <box size="2.62 1.3 1.4478"/>
         <material name="Yellow"/>


<joint name="inertial_joint" type="fixed">
      <parent link="base_link"/>
      <child link="main_mass"/>
      <origin xyz="0 0 0" rpy="0 0 0"/>

<link name="main_mass" type="fixed">
    <!-- <parent link="inertial_joint"/> -->
        <origin xyz="0 0 1.0639" rpy="0 0 0"/>
        <mass value="1"/>
          ixx="1"  ixy="0.000000" ixz="0"

You'll have to define the gazebo color as well

<gazebo reference="base_link">
