This is a Deformable Linear Wire, considered as a two link manipulator. Two revelute joints are consisted with springs. And the whole system can be rotated around the x-axis. The mass of the links is concentrated at the end of the links. Please find the attached model. What is the way that the mass can put in the end of the links and make the whole system rotates around the x-axis?

You can use the General Variable Mass block to set the center of mass in simscape.
The simscape model can be rotated along X axis by using the rigid transform blocks. Refer to this answer for more details on rotating the simscape model along X axis.
