    Default How To Machine 300mm Clear Acrylic Tube?

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to make a clear acrylic tube in size of 300 mm outer diameter and 3 mm wall.

    There are many ways to make it.

    Pipe extruder is too large to put in my house.

    Too many materials wasted if machined using 300 mm clear acrylic circle rod by lathe/milling machine.

    I don’t know whether injection molding machine can do this or not.

    I've heard about casting method but I'm not sure about it.

    So, is there available any method to create this?

    Thanks in advance

    You could heat your acrylic sheet in an oven to soften it and wrap it around a cylinder, then join the polished ends together with clear acrylic glue.
