Laser cut plexiglass Case

After the handmade case, I decided to create a new case. This was done with Inkscape, and send to a professional laser cut service.
The drawing can be found here: PDF file
A picture of the pieces:
 And of the assembled case:

The different pieces are glued together with regular acetone. To minimise cracks I put the pieces in a regular oven (see here, and here):
- Increasing the temperature with 15deg per 30 min upto 75 deg
- Left the pieces in the oven during 2h, at 75 deg
- Switched off the oven, and let it cool all night
