    HI Guys

    If I want to build something out of acrylic or perspex what tools will be usefull for cutting drilling and general shaping.

    Are there any companies here that build things out of acrylic or perspex by order?

    Would like to build some Pico lighting units so looking waht can be done.

    regards

    Hi

    We have a laser cutter, and we can do Acrylic/Perspex work.

    Please keep in mind that Acrylic and Perspex is expensive material, especially in SA as every supplier imports.

    Hi jeann1

    Will you be able to give me a quote if I send you a cut sheet with all my requirements.

    What does 1square meter of black 10mm acrylic cost?
