use a file to round the axles, and a 4.7mm drill to round the holes. make sure the the holes and axles have tight fit or the joints will move freely and the model won't remain in standing position.There are 3 bodies 3 sets of legs: front, mid, hind. print 2 each and connect with connecting beams (2 sets).
