Picked up a large sheet of thin (.08) acrylic plastic.

Would like to cut out pieces to use as see-thru ship bases.

Any tips on how to cut neatly pieces of acrylic?

Can one score and snap or will that leave messy edges?

Your idea ware welcome, thanks.

I saw this since you mentioned acrylic. If anyone is interested in picking some up.

Laser cutting is best, of course, but the above will work.

When I ran a warehouse for a sign company wholesaler we had lots of acrylic sheets. They were all cut with a fine toothed table or skill saw.

Hook ended Stanley knife blade. Removes the material from the cut.
