Can you use a router to cut a design in clear 8mm perspex sheet ?

No problem, not too slow a speed and keep everything moving in case of heat build-up. Go to any decent sign maker and you'll see various versions of overhead routers being used to cut out letters etc.

Dealing with the swarf can be quite good fun, due to the fact that it tends to develop a static charge. Good dust extraction helps to overcome this problem.
