Standard CNC mills have 3 axes that move in three dimensions XYZ to cut the acrylic to get the desired result. This milling technique is used for simple geometries and designs that do not require multiple rotations of the workpiece. Drill holes and mill slots are typically created through 3 axis millings.
4-axis CNC milling machine has an extra degree of movement on the vertical axis. This extra movement enables greater flexibility and the ability to produce complex acrylic parts. This milling process opens additional access to the side of the acrylic parts allowing the milling of slots and holes to the side of the workpiece.
It is the most advanced type of milling machine which two additional movement capabilities. In this process, acrylic parts don’t require multiple setups, since the 5-axis mill can work in a different position. These mill machines are used to create intricate details and complex designs used in aerospace and medical products.

These questions will allow you to learn about the properties, applications, benefits, and other necessary knowledge so you could have the basic information before the start of your CNC milling acrylic project.
Acrylic is a widespread material because of its phenomenal properties. Its most important characteristic is its strength, acrylic is 5 times stronger than glass and also shock-resistant and shatterproof. Parts developed by CNC milling acrylic are 92% transparent as compare to window glass and polycarbonate which is 83-90% and 90% transparent respectively.
Acrylic milled parts do not deteriorate in UV light for a long period of time while other plastic becomes yellow and brittle. This makes it a good choice for many industries. Acrylic is also good at corrosion-resistant.
The acrylic milled parts are very durable and resistant which makes them very crucial for so many different applications. These applications include car lights, advertising and shop banners, light tubes and so many other products. These applications require the finest precision and unmatched surface finishing and that’s why acrylic is quite a good choice for these applications because of its strength and rigidity.
We have learned about the acrylic properties and some benefits. Below is the detailed list of the acrylic CNC milled parts advantages that can help in a number of applications in different industries.
Yes, acrylic sheets can be CNC milled. If you need to cut the specific shape from an acrylic sheet then CNC milling is one of the preferred methods. Especially when you require complex shapes and professional finishing.
In a CNC mill, the acrylic sheet is clamped and then processed with a computer-controlled multi-axis milling cutter. It is necessary to remember that the milling machine has a sharp blade and that it doesn’t get obstructed by the chips. Once you start milling the acrylic sheet, you can create multiple shapes from it. Acrylic is typically milled to create diagonal cuts, circles, house numbers, and other multiple shapes. Letters used for advertising and signage are frequently seen as examples of acrylic milled sheets.
Yes, the acrylic board can also be milled. CNC milling acrylic boards are used in multiple applications, the most prominent ones are cabinet doors and windows. Acrylic boards replace the glass of the cabinet door because they break in certain circumstances or when they become old and brittle.
This makes acrylic board increasingly popular and replacing glass in many applications. Glass is very difficult to handle and install where the acrylic board is easy to handle and to cut in exact size. It is also lightweight which makes it adhere to cabinets and windows.
Yes, acrylic bars can also be milled. Acrylic bars are solid cylindrical in shape pieces of acrylic. They are durable and naturally UV resistant and lightweight. They are known for keeping their known shape and can not be bend and shrink easily.
Acrylic bars have so many applications such as sign holders, office interior objects, skylights, crystal chandeliers, glazing applications and are used for model making. It has the degree of flexibility that allows it to be shatter-resistant. Acrylic bars are made up of material that requires minimal maintenance. DEK also offers CNC milling acrylic services for acrylic bars, according to its client’s requirements.
Acrylic CNC milled parts are used in multiple industries and have a number of applications. Below are some of the major applications of CNC milling acrylic parts.
Acrylic is a transparent material and has a certain level of clarity which makes it useful as shatterproof glass in many industries. Some of these industries are aerospace, automotive and optical industries, in these industries it is used under the brand name Plexiglass.
Acrylic is usually used as a glass alternative for the transparency purpose in window-like structures in submarines, aquariums, hockey arenas, etc. It is also used in the automotive industry for lighting parts as a headlamp. Lamps in optical and automotive applications are of complex shapes and require very tight tolerance to deliver the best optical performance.
Acrylic properties make it suitable for eyeglasses lenses and non-disposable contact lenses.
Acrylic is a good biocompatible material, it can be used in many medical and dental applications such as cosmetic surgery where it can be used as an under-skin filler. Acrylic is also used as bone cement in orthopedic surgeries. Its properties also make it a good choice for dentistry equipment and procedures.
Acrylic’s aesthetic appearance makes it a suitable material for a wide range of consumer products like musical instruments, consumer electronics, and furniture.
Acrylic can also be found in LCD, CDs, and DVDs. Contemporary structures and artworks use acrylic because of its easier to manipulate properties.
Below is the list of some of the components that are created from acrylic and industries that use acrylic to manufacture different products.
The CNC milling acrylic and the laser cutting acrylic are the most popular methods used for producing precision parts for different industries. We have to discuss the differences between these two to find out which process is best suited for our applications.
CNC milling acrylic is a contact-based cutting or milling process which has obvious advantages such as versatility and flexibility. It can precisely cut and engrave acrylic material with speed like the laser cutter to close specific fiction. Design programmed in CNC milling machines provides signals to cut and carve the acrylic material with accuracy, the computer-controlled the specific velocity and positioning, back and forth, side to side movement. In CNC milling, the efficiency, speed, and ease of use increase the productivity to improve the acrylic milled part.
Subtractive precision cutting creates less waste than other conventional cutting processes which means fewer material costs. This eventually increases productivity and decreases the lead time and saves money.
Like CNC milling, the laser cutter is also guided by a CNC machine. Cutting is a non-contact procedure, it is a thermal-based process that uses a focused high power laser beam to cut the acrylic part and carves it with shapes and designs. In this process there is no designing tool is required. Cutting is achieved by the heat to perform the accurate cutting to acquire the precise parts. A high-energy beam burns the material rather than carving.
Because this process uses CNC machining, it can consistently produce complex designs and shapes, intricate parts, and exceptional smooth finishes than normal drills. Laser cutting acrylic parts don’t require secondary finishing such as cleaning treating and finishing. It is suitable for rapid prototyping with exceptional details with incredible speed. Prototypes can be cut in few minutes with a laser cutter and different versions can be produced quickly for testing purposes.
CNC milling and laser cutting are both highly effective, efficient, and versatile methods used for the precision cutting of acrylic parts. Though they have distinct differences they can complement each other. So the conclusion we can take from this discussion is that the use of any of these procedures for acrylic parts depends upon many factors and applications.
