Even if you don’t know how to model in a 3D program, lots of makers share their files and patterns available for free or a nominal cost online. One way to ensure your 3D printed props are more durable for cosplay or film-making is to make them flexible. Punished Props has a how-to detailing the method for making flexible versions of Genji’s shuriken that you can apply to other weapons.
