    I've seen people having bent plexi in mods what is the process to do that?

    Plexi Bending

    I am actually looking at that into a mod I am "trying" to make happen. I would assume that it would require the plexi be heated to a certain temperature, then formed some how, either by mounts, or clamps or some other means.

    Plexi Bending

    I once bent a small piece of acrylic by heating it in the oven and forming it with my hand wearing workers gloves. It worked good.

    Plexi Bending

    i tried doing the bending with a torch lighter and it worked OK for small parts its OK but i let it sit to long on one side and it bubbled up.

    patience... i think u should have heated it slowly - from a distance.
    p.s. bubbled up plexi is a dead plexi... won't look good, unless u bubble up it entirlly... lol

    Practice practice....heat the plexi slowly and evenly. If you aplly just a little bit of pressure when heating it you feel it start to give alittle and it will start to bend.
