Im not sure if this would help for your particular projects, but after years of printing various light diffusing models, i accidentally discovered that that white filament works way better than clear natural filaments for light diffusion

Added an image for a direct comparison between natural diffusive filament and white filament.

Thanks. I know, white filament does a good job in diffusing light. However, it also blocks way too much light. I may upload some photos comparing white with natural filament. Even 0.5mm of white block lots of light. And if you have your white object in a well lit room or (worst case) daylight, you barely see the light in it at all.
