I am sure this has been addressed before, but I am new to this stuff and I could not readily find it. I want to make a very simple water bottle "topper" that will allow me to put it on a standard water bottle (such as Ozarka or Aquafina or whatever) and has a large mouth for easily refilling the bottle with a water fountain. I do not think it would be a big concern, but does anyone think this would necessarily be harmful to have the water I am drinking coming into contact with the 3D printed material in this manner? I wouldn't actually be drinking out of the 3D printed part, it would just momentarily come into contact with the liquid as I am filling the water bottle. For what it's worth, I have seen a few 3D printed objects that adapt to a water bottle for watering plants and animals (pets), but not so much for humans. Thanks!
