Arm-Z is a concept of a robotic manipulator comprised of linearly joined congruent modules with possibility of relative twist. The advantages of Arm-Z are: economization (mass-production) and robustness (modules which failed can be replaced, also if some fail the system can perform certain tasks). Non-intuitive and difficult control are the disadvantages of Arm-Z. It has been introduced over six years ago. The theretofore research focused on the control of the virtual Arm-Z manipulator through the relative twists of its constituent units. This paper documents the fabrication and testing of the preliminary physical prototype of a simple Arm-Z, which has been built using relatively low-tech approach. The modules have been assembled from 3D-printed elements using PET-G filament. Each module is equipped with a transmission mechanism allowing to pre-set the spin of its twist (either positive/right or negative/left). Although the presented system is very simple it demonstrates certain meaningful kinematic actions and sets clear paths for the future research in the area of Extremely Modular Systems.
