Hello Primrose,


Thanks for your question and welcome to the community!


The best tool to use to cut acrylic light panels is shown and linked below.

Plaskolite Cutting Tool for Plastic Sheets


Use this by scoring, not cutting, the panels on the flat NOT cracked ice side. Use a straight-edge (preferably metal), and score successive lines for your cut(s).


After scoring the lines, take the about-to-be-cut side on the edge of a table and snap off or hit that portion with a mallet.


Usually after a few deep scores the cut portion can easily be removed by hand. Be careful of the cut edge, and you will have a slight rough edge for the new cut. However, since this would be going into a troffer light, the trim would cover it up, allowing your lighting panel to rest flat into the space.


Let us know if this has assisted you, and we hope to hear from you again.
