I have done some vacuum forming. I used 0.04" thick PETG, although Polycarbonate should work as well.

This was something I designed, built and was suppose to be for a competition for last april but I never got around to painting it and putting the finishing touches on it.. But I made 3 of them and were quite easy to fabricate from scratch.
