I have a 600x600mm piece of 3mm thick acrylic sheet and I would like to cut it to a 550x550mm sized piece for a personal project. Does Bunnings have a service to do such a cut for me? If so how much do you charge?
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community Michael (@michael_cc). It's fabulous to have you join us and many thanks for your question.
Unfortunately, we do not offer a cutting service for the acrylic sheet.
To cut the sheet yourself, you can use a jigsaw and fine-toothed blade. Alternatively, you can use a score and snap knife. Mark the line you wish to cut and then clamp a piece of timber as a guide on it. Cut a narrow groove in the sheeting with the knife by running it against the timber. Place the sheet over a hard edge with the groove-side up. Clamp the sheet in place and then snap the sheet at the groove.
Please let me know if you need further help or had questions.
Simplest way is to take it to a Plastic Fabrication Co...Or a Sign Manufacturer They will cut it to size for a couple of bucks !
Just thought I'd throw this in...

I trust having a laser cutter must open up a world of possibilities for making intricate cuts on various mediums.
