Acrylic light diffuser cut

Your plastic shop should be willing to cut them for you if you know the directions. They might charge something nominal but usually not if you buy the plastic from them.

Depending on type and thickness you can often score the sheets with a utility knife and snap off excess at the cuts.

You can cut it on a table saw with an appropriate blade or with other saws.

Be mindful of the fumes generated. It is best to leave the protective covering on while cutting it.

Some laser cutting services will cut intricate patterns, cut-outs and shapes for you but not all will deal with all kinds of plastics because of the potentially harmful fumes generated.
