I am using gazebo turtlebot with ros for my project and I need to edit turtlebot model, such as changing its color. I find a folder called turtlebot_description and i think that i should change some parameters in that file to achieve this, so can anyone help me to which file contains information that controls turtlebots color ?

In the urdf file you have some visual tags where normally you can find the mesh files used to represent the turtlebot. It's possible to add a material tag to set a color (wiki).

But I'm not sure you can change the color without modifying the mesh directly, maybe you should ask on the gazebo forum.
