Bend Acrylic Using a Heat Gun

To bend acrylic using a heat gun, you can follow these steps:

  • Measure and mark the desired bend line on the acrylic sheet.
  • Heat the bend line with a heat gun, moving the gun back and forth along the line.
  • Use a bending jig or a piece of wood to support the acrylic as it bends.
  • Gradually apply pressure to the top of the acrylic, bending it to the desired angle.
  • Hold the bend in place until the acrylic cools and sets.
  • Repeat the heating and bending process for multiple bends, if necessary.

Note: Make sure to wear gloves and protective eye gear, as the heat from the heat gun can cause burns. Also, be sure to work in a well-ventilated area, as the fumes from heating the acrylic can be hazardous.
