What you need:

bearing 608zz2
M3X306 ~ 12
M3X78(or 80)6~12
M3 nuts several
∅5mm steel ballseveral
all the printed parts(including one ARM2 part)

put two 608zz on the ARM1_wave_generator

add 12 nuts to the ARM1_slew_inner_b

and 3 nuts on back of inner_b

Put two parts together

A M3X6 bolts will do the job

put ARM1_bearing_holder on top of the bearing.

And install 2 M3X20 to fasten the bearing holder.

Like the BASE parts, slew bearing( there are two slew bearing in ARM1) need ∅5mm steel balls

add steel balls to the slew bearing, small gap is needed. (PS. don't forget apply some grease/lubricant.)

Put ARM1_slew_inner_a_with_gear_1mX60 in place, and 6 ~ 12 M3X14 bolts to fasten the parts.put ARM1_input_gear_1mX15 to the NEMA 17 motor( high torque one is needed).4 M3X14 to fix the motor.Another slew bearing, as before.6 M3X14 to fasten the ARM1_slew_bearing_inner_part1 and ARM1_slew_bearing_inner_part2, 6 M3X20 fasten ARM1_slew_bearing_inner_part1 , ARM1_slew_bearing_inner_part1 and ARM1_flex_08mX98_v2.

We also need ARM2_connector_to_arm1( belongs to ARM2 parts) for easy assembly ( because we must fasten this to add other parts). Put those together. Don't forget nuts on ARM1_slew_bearing_outer ( If you don't have M3X80 bolts, you can apply M3X40 before you fix ARM2_connector_to_arm1) .Put all the parts together, done.
