Hey guys,

I used to have Paragon Plastics and S&W Plastics within a 10 minute drive of my house. Cut-offs could be had at few bucks for a couple lbs of plexi, both acrylic and polycarbonate. Sadly, it looks like all of the retail locations have closed and they are fabrication only. I went on Amazon and eBay looking for plexi pieces. I was shocked at the prices. Everyone told me how cheap it was to laser-cut plexi vs cost of 3D printing. They are obviously seeing prices I am not seeing because my math is telling me that plexi is more than twice as much as printing pieces myself. Obviously, plexi is stronger but I can't find any good prices. That being said, anyone know of a place where scrap and cut-offs could be had or is that a thing of the past now?
