    Of course it's possible. It won't melt. You could get it from a DIY shop, though working with it (i.e. drilling holes) could be difficult for you to do at home
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    there are special saws to use with those: dremels are NOT smart to use UNLESS you have a blade SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED for acrylic

    bow saws work well

    Just a regular handsaw works. Just let the weight of the saw do work as you cut. Don't press.

    You can get acrylic at large home centers like Home Hardware.

    if you want to just make a circle in the acrylic for a fan then you can buy a wholesaw for your drill, but get one designed for acrylic.
