Hey guys in the office , my local supplier had large sheets of plexiglass but I would rather buy it pre sliced with polished edges and I would probably be cheaper off than buying 4 x 8 sheets and cutting them myself. Do you buy it as a box kit? Aprox cost? Maybe a website I can get them from? Thanks guys

I have found a few conversations, tutorials and activities that may help with your question. Take a look at these links. I've sorted them by what I believe to be most relevant but that is not always the case as I'm still learning.


Also, consider reviewing the Learn section for informative lessons and activities. Check it out!

We bought it from a local place in Calgary. We brought in dimensions and told them what we were trying to build and they did all the cuts for us. It wasn't super cheap though. I believe around $80-$100/ box. We used a "glue" that actually melts the acrylic together. I can't remember what it's called though...

Ah ok, thanks Alan !
The sheets here are higher so a 100 dollar plexiglass box would be a savings , thanks for the reply. Before you replied I found a online provider I can order precut pieces for the "glue" them.

Since we did 5 of them at once we didn't have to buy 5 sheets. Thats the only reason we were able to get them done for ~$100.

I checked Pleximart.com - they have a ton of stuff! Nice find.

The Solvent we used is called Methylene Chloride.
