When I have to cut Plexiglas and other plastics, I use the table saw.
To keep the edge from chipping and to lubricate the blade going through, I cover the cut line on both sides, with masking tape.
Keeping an even feed rate will keep the heat down and the buildup along the cut edge down to a minimum. If I'm not going to mate the pieces, I use 1500 wet/dry to clean up the edge.
