This towel bar bumper is designed to absorb the shock of a glass shower door bumping into the corner of a specific towel bar model (see pictures). It is meant to be printed using Ninjaflex filament.
Note that the towel bar needs to be removed from its holding bracket in order to slide in the towel bar bumper.

I measured the various diameters of the towel bar corner bracket using a digital calliper. I sketched the bracket profile in 3D adding 0.2mm to each of the measurements and extruded it in 3D (this was primarily used as a cutout shape for my bumper). I made a cylinder with a diameter 6mm larger than my largest measurement and cut out the previously-made shape. I then rounded the outer edges for style and some inner edges for strength. This is my second version; the first version had a larger tolerance and slipped away too easily.
