i wouldnt recommend clear acrylic ( if you mean perspex ) its too brital. if you want to use anything id recommend some black polystyrene sheets ad then some white screen print or letracet.

Yes the scanner lens is acrylic and fairly thick. Its worth a go. Id be interested to know how it turns out though with all those small openings.

The overlays made by a lasersystem.
That`s why it`s plastic .
The heatlaser cut the plastic .
