    Default Easy Plexi Bending

    There will always be lots of plexi bending tutorials, but mine is specifically for adding a bend to plexi. Nothing elaborate.

    I have an electric stove, so I assume gas stoves would be similiar.



    Hold the section you want to bend about 4 inches over the burner



    You'll feel it starting to bow within a couple seconds. Get it soft enough and then move it to the position you want it in and using your mouth blow it dry.



    I painted mine red for my R2-M5 PC

    I will try this out. I haven't worked on my cases in a long time, and I need to get back to work.

    Placing it in the oven may not be too good of an idea, especially if you plan to ever use the oven again for food preparation. Heating of acrylic (polycarbonate) can release toxic gases that aren't good for you at best, and known carcinogens at worst. Even worse would be heating polystyrene. Now, if you can dedicate an old oven for this, and circuit reflow work, that'd be awesome (I wish I had that kind of setup).
