New to drypoint and question about sizing?

Hi there I ordered 4mm thick perspex/plexiglass and was wondering if this is too thick to go through the printing press? I did not realise how thick it was until it arrived today and cannot return them. I realise that I can adjust the roller but I am still worried about damaging the press, especially as it is not mine but the universities. Thank you in advance.

it should be no problem as linoleum is that thick and woodcuts even thicker... just adjust the roller.

Should be fine for the etching press. Of course, make sure the edges are well-beveled.

How thick is it? My general experience with plexi is that it is most common in a 1/8" thickness.
