Yeh my old bosch jigsaw done that to some acrylic i cut a while back. Finished cutting some acrylic and was like "eh, could of sworn i cut this a sec ago" lol
Thats becasue your going to fast , don't push so hard.
For Acrylic and thin Aluminium a router is your best tool, make a MDF jig the use a flute with ball bearing to cut the acrylic.
For Jigsaws, anything Makita, DeWalt or Bosch and your'll be fine <dance1>.

they do an Ok job, but they melt the plastic and leavs behind a mess that just rejoins the plastic together,
If you put masking tape where you want to cut,this stops the melting alot.
Also this helps.
Jig Saw or Band Saw:
Jig saws can be used to cut acrylic when you need something other than a straight cut. To reduce the work of cleaning up the cut, use the finest blade that you can find. Blades with reduced depth (like those used for scroll work - shown below) will work best due to less friction and less resistance when turning the blade. You'll have to experiment with cutting speed to see what works best. Too much pressure can cause excessive chipping. Going too slow may cause the acrylic to melt. If the acrylic melts when cutting, use a light lubricating oil. Have someone apply the oil to the blade as you're making the cut. DON'T use an aerosol dispensed oil. The propellant may be flammable and may be ignited by the jig saw motor. I've had good results with the blade shown below.
