These are 5mm LED difffusers for small LED grids. They fit 5mm LEDs loosely, and are good for LEDs in a breadboard.

You can easily make your own custom sizes by importing the 1x1 diffuser into a design program and duplicating it. Then you can arrange them as you like.
I used this on a 3x3 LED grid on a breadboard to make a tic tac toe game with the Raspberry Pi. For more info, see https://electrothoughts.wordpress.com/2016/03/07/tic-tac-toe-arcade-game-with-raspberry-pi/.
You shouldn't print with raft if possible. Print with holes upward, otherwise it'll be impossible to get support material out. Print with natural colored PLA or other translucent filament in order to let light shine through. The higher your infill, the more light will be blocked. The 3x3 grid was printed at 15% infill, and it seems to be suitable.
