    hi there
    How can I cut a window into 3mm clear acrylic sheet? I need to create a sample? I need a nice smooth finish. We are based in the UK, can you recommend any hand tool first? then second a desktop CNC cutter. We like to try it by hand first to see customer response then invest into machinery. please see attachment for example

    The question is how much is your time worth?

    Snafu has the correct answer, followed by flame polishing. Does your client really understand the mechanics and cost of their request? The process can be sub-contracted out.

    P.S. there is a charge for this type of prototype.
