You cut thin lexan with the sticky plastic backing still on it. If it's off, put duct tape on both sides of the cut. Use a jigsaw with a fine toothed blade if youre cutting shapes. For a straight cut use a circular saw with a very fine blade (like the type to cut particle board and melamine). Make sure not to twist the blade and keep it perfectly perpendicular as lexan will shatter.

Not to forget the score and break method if they dont have access to power tools.
