Does anyone have any experience bending acrylic after an object is laser cut? Is it possible to score in cut-phase with the cutter and heat with a heat gun, bending against some hard edged object or template, in order to get attractive bends? Or does one have to get one of those expensive acrylic strip heaters?
I saw a YouTube video where someone actually used their laser to heat the acrylic enough to get a bend along the path, but that machine has much more Z-axis than we’re gonna have.
One of my early projects that I want to do is some custom acrylic stands for my toy/miniatures display cases as well as make some custom acrylic built-in’s for spice organization (as well as some new custom etched bottles, of course! smile). Bending will be nicer for some planar edges than slot and tab for everything.
