Acrylic can be brittle, heat won't help. You would be better off with Lexan. It's a lot easier to machine
You want to use tools that are not too aggressive cutting. For drill bits, use a bit for wood , not steel. Saw blades use a fine (plywood) one. I actually put them on a flat surface and tap the tooth set flat with a hammer. Use a slow speed and feed rate. I rig up an air nozzle or you can have someone direct a flow of air at the cutting area to help cool the cut and clear debris or it will melt and reform after the cut
why won't my laptop work?
