I like this design and I want to use it as half a 3d glas on an embossed medal. But therefore I need a solid shape not hollow to cut in pieces and print.
Would you be so kind to publish a solid version ?

PET, or polyethylene terephthalate, is a polymer that is derived from polyester and is one of the more prolific thermoplastic materials in use today. It is used for products as diverse as thermal insulation, magnetic tape, pressure sensitive adhesives, and fabrics like polar fleece. And because PET is highly resistant to water and moisture, it is an extremely popular food-safe packaging material, and is what most water and soda bottles are made of.

As a 3D printing material it is very easy to use, holds its shape well, and can be used to hold liquids and food without any toxicity issues. It also doesn’t require a heated bed for first layer adhesion, making it compatible for use with most 3D printers on the market today. That makes it an ideal option for prints that require a transparent material; however, even the transparent PET options available weren’t especially transparent.

As far as I now, the plastics we use for printing are not proved to be food safe.
