Yup.

And, the cheapest, easiest source of MethylMethacrylate might be de-polymerization of scrap acrylic glass, AKA lucite.

Just heat it up, and it comes apart again. Distill it off.

Though I suppose it is best, not to distill to dryness. Peroxides.

I've seen someone try to melt a plexiglass window with a lighter and it took forever to make a small hole.also there's thermo and thermoset plastics one type the thermo I think can be remelted once it's been set.the other one the thermoset plastics will just chat and breakdown if heated I'm pretty sure lucite is thermoset.so I'm not sure whether you'd get anything other than burnt plastic smell from trying to melt any of it.just buy pure methyl methacrylate and polymerize it yoerself.

What do you need to make it for any way? Can't you buy it?does it need to be a custom shape?
