Help with a personal project

by scruffyhere

So me and my dad got a 3D printer, me being completely new to it where my dad has a little experience with how it works. I'm learning as we move on. Anywho, we have a Anet A8 stock firmware printer and I've learned a lot from it
Then the Arduino based projects came along such as eggbot, 3D scanner, penPlotter. But those are just download the files and upload and boom you're done.

Now I wanted some help in a project I'm working on to not only improve my learning about arduino but also to learn how to help my father in some of his future projects as well. PS, non of those arduino projects worked out correctly except penPlotter.

Anywho, so I came across https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2865395
I went ahead and printed it all and its just sitting there now.
Along side it I printed these as well:

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:281103
So from reading the description, an Arduino Uno was used as well as a bluetooth module and looking around my house I have both of those and wanted to know is there any possible way I could complete this project? using an arduino uno instead of a zero delay encoder? I only ask that because I dont want to order anything online and they don't sell anything like that in my country.

For the key switches I have an old Razer Blackwidow mechanical keyboard and I think I am about to remove the keys from there with the help of my dad and use the caps and push buttons printed for these switches and now the real quick and big help I need is the assemble. I can't find anything anywhere and I'm just curious what can I possibly do, can I get any help from the community?

Feel free to contact me about any help or suggestion or if my work is wrong and I should consider a different path. I will be checking my messages on a daily basis

Thank you all so much
