I am a noob when it comes to plexiglass and acrylic. Are they the same thing? I am trying to find local sources for materials to cut if possible.
Plexiglass is a brand of acrylic. For cutting, cast or rolled acrylic are fine. But if you want the engraving to be white then you want cast.
Well TIL. I had no idea that plexiglass was a brand.
You also see the chemical name PMMA , which is the same as acrylic.
