typical acrylic thickness

Hello everyone,
I am going to have a new acrylic panel made for an upcoming build using Fractal Design Focus G and was wondering if anyone knew the thickness of the acrylic.
My case doesn't come in until tuesday so i can't get the final thickness; but my cnc tech would like to know a rough estimate so he can be prepped for when i give it to him.


thanks!

I believe 2.5mm & 3.0mm are common thickness.

Do you have a supplier to contact? Acrylic may be hard to find or expensive due to COVID-19 (make shift dividers at shops and offices).

I built a case window many years before and I believe I used 2.5mm but unfortunately, I didnt write down the size.

I do not; however the case itself already has the acrylic, they are going to cut the final product into that and cut into scrap until they get the design right.

Ah, so you wanted to confirm the existing thickness of the acrylic from the case. I misunderstood.

I still believe the sizes mentioned previously are standard. 98mils (2.5mm) or 118mils (3.0mm).

Maybe you can find someone with the case (try hitting up a group thread if one exists) or email a rep.
