    ....................... Tip on using an xacto knife to score plastic sheet
    ......................

    Hold the knife vertical to the surface and use the blade backwards to scribe
    your lines, not to "cut" them .. use a sharp tipped, straight sided blade .... like this
    ... | -> pulled this direction ->

    using it this way it will cut quickly, you will get long curls and it will be easy to steer to follow even a curved line

    I used it to cut out 1/8 " plexi windows and cut curves too (curves require deeper cuts) and it worked great
