Routing PMMA

Routing PMMA

Plexi (Polymethylmethacrylate or PMMA for short) is a transparent thermoplastic, often called "plexiglass". The material can be milled just fine with the right tools, strategies and parameters. Cast PMMA (GS) is preferred over extruded PMMA (XT). PMMA is available both crystal clear and in various colours.
