Like many people, we also have a trampoline in our backyard. Unfortunately all the pole caps broke or the top broke, so they started sliding down the pole, with the safety net along. So I decided to print my own, and started working in Sketchup. It didn't take long (like 6 minutes) for the first test cap to be ready for printing. After the print was about 1 cm high. I made it stop, so I could test the inner diameter on the pole. Made some more adjustments and than started printing our 8 caps.
