If you like this, you should also check out gcardinals Lens cap. It doesn't need sanding and fits very well. Also the side connected to the mount is a bit wider (similar to canon lens caps), which helps it to proctect a bit more of the Mount. Very well done. Link: http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...
Hej! Looks very good. At the moment I have no access to a printer, but I'll definitely try your cap. I guess it provides more grip for the hand. And I really like that little overhang. I think it'll give the back of the lens more protection than the nikon(ish) designs.
Hi, Sebatian! I finally my printer operation again, tested and uploaded a fully printable lens cap, you can check it out here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... . Thanks for inspiration!

1) Use PLA instead of ABS. I printed a few on a Makerbot Replicator and ABS tended to warp quite badly, while PLA came out perfect with this design. But maybe you're luckier. (I typically print this one with these settings: Infill 20%, PLA at 185Â°C extruder and 60Â°C heated plate.
2) If the print is fine, you NEED to get some fine sandpaper (120 or finer) and sand the part that goes to your lens until it fits. I'll add a version that will fit out of the box. For now, if you sand it to the right measure, it will fit perfectly and the surface will be very smooth.
