type of tumbler, and tumbling time if possible, thank you,

Without knowing what the tumbling should do, it is difficult to
answer.

Tumbling can texture, smooth, and polish. To give a useful answer,
it helps greatly to understand what is being tumbled. Is the acrylic
in metal? With stones? How big are the pieces, and weight?

Acrylic, being softer than metal, would require very fine abrasive,
with cushioning in the tumbler.
