    I know some of you are passionate about cosplay, however, it can be quite difficult to create the props and costumes by yourself. For this purpose, I have done a bit of research and I found a method that could help those of you who are trying to create big swords, helmets or costumes.

    The easiest method, but not the cheapest, is to set up a 3D printer. This video can guide you on how to choose a 3D printer for your needs and what upgrades you need, tips and tricks:

    It can be a bit pricy for students to buy a 3D printer but again, if they have the new iPhone 13, they can get a good 3D printer set up to create the props they will need. Except I think that setting up a 3D printer with upgrades and raw materials is cheaper than the new iPhone 13.
