Can I make this robot with MG996 servo?

The robot requires an HJS3315D Robot Servo with the bracket for mounting in the base. The other two for the shoulder and elbow can be replaced with any servos of the same size (20x40mm) so the MG996 can be used in place of those two.

Did you made this in Inventor or fusion 360? Can you share the.assambly file? I want to know how to mount the servo's in the arm_base_servo_segment

I created it in Autodesk Inventor. The assembly file requires all the .ipt part files as well. If you really need them then I can probably find space on my OneDrive to upload and share them. I have attached picture of the assembly with the arm_base_servo_segment sliced open. I hope this helps.

Nice design. Will you be sharing arduino source code?

Thank you. I will be, however I need to make a few changed and put some comments into it first.

Thanks. No rush...possibly a project for the New Year for me.

I have added the code to my GitHub now. There area few minor changes you will need to do; mostly just checking the pin assignments and calibrating the servo pulses for the driver board. https://github.com/isaac879/3D-Printed-5-Aixs-Robot-Arm

Thanks - Something to play with!

Looks like your code does "the hard work" but you don't have much of an interface to it, I will play with using a serial interface to begin with.
