Can i partially melt a CD cover?

I cut a hole in my computer mouse to put a window in with a colour changing LED. I want to know if i can put a cd cover in the oven and melt it to make it conform to the mouses contours. I don't have a heat gun so can i just use an oven to do it. Has anyone tried this? if so what temperature.

i dont think this is a good idea. maybe, however, you can get some boiling water going and boil the case . ive known a lot of plastic stuff to become temporarily pliable when boiled as opposed to being carcinogenic stinky goop in your oven. a little iffy as to how to bend to the shape without boiling the mouse! maybe an analog of some kind. good luck!
