It is a cheaper process with more stable thickness across sheets.
It is also easier to laser cut, rout and polish.
Cast acrylic is better for machining as it is less likely to bend, chip or melt.
It has a harder surface with fewer impurities in its surface as it is formed in a closed area during casting.
It is lightweight and rigid with low water absorption. It is limited in thickness.
