Some things to consider include:
Budgies need to be able to climb.
How will they climb the sides of the plexiglass to get to the cage bars?
Additionally, budgies can almost always climb using their beaks as long as one leg/foot is able to grasp the bars as well, but keeping any budgie in a glass enclosure puts the bird at an extreme disadvantage if the time comes when it can't easily hop or fly.
You obviously won't be able to put any perches or toys where the plexiglass is which means the food dishes will be higher than the plexiglass - correct? (Assuming you aren't planning to sit them on the floor of the cage, of course.)
Therefore, if your budgies are like mine -- you will still have seed/pellets that are not contained by the plexiglass but are thrown by your birds out of the cage onto the floor.
And feathers from molting birds drift and float so the feathers won't all be contained either.
How do you plan to attach the cage bars to the plexiglass sides and how will the sides secure to the plexiglass bottom?
Seed and pellet debris are going to collect in the edges and corners where the sides and bottom of the plexiglass meet and it isn't going to be easy to clean.
Do you have children and/or other pets that could potentially break the glass portion of the cage?
