  • Patent number: 10926529
    Abstract: Disclosed are three-dimensional parts, such as orthotics and prosthetics, having sinusoidal wave pattern infill structures first and second boundary walls. Also disclosed are printers or systems configured to manufacture such parts, as well as methods of manufacturing such parts. The sinusoidal wave pattern infill structures are formed between, and normal to, the first and second boundary walls and are configured to provide locally tunable structural properties in different regions of the part.

  • Publication number: 20210012442
    Abstract: Methods and systems for crop management are disclosed. An example method can comprise receiving first information associated with an environmental management zone. The first information can relate to one or more of a land characteristic and a management practice. The first information can comprise a soil type of the environmental management zone. An example method can comprise, receiving historical weather data relating to the environmental management zone. An example method can comprise receiving real-time weather data relating to the environmental management zone. An example method can comprise executing a growth model to predict a nitrogen range for the environmental management zone based on one or more of the first information, the historical weather data, and the real-time weather data. The nitrogen range can comprise probabilities for one or more of a current time period and a future time period in the growing season.

  • Patent number: 10846665
    Abstract: A service provider may assist in management of remotely stored data. The service provider may cause a user device to update remotely stored personal information, including payment information, across one or more third party electronic sites (e.g., websites, applications, and/or other remote data repositories). The service provider may build a site directory of sites that store personal data. The site directory may include information to enable update of personal information for a specific site, such as which pages to access, what data to input, what type of inputs are acceptable, and other selections and/or inputs to create, modify, update, or switch personal information maintained by a site with new or different personal information. The service provider may create a script that, when executed by an application on a user device, may cause the user device to automatically update the personal information on one or more third party sites.

  • Publication number: 20200003774
    Abstract: The invention relates to biosensors for detecting odorants, especially a biosensor that mimics odorant detection by a mammal, for example, humans, dogs or cats. The field of the invention also related to the standardization of odors for scent, smell and taste using the biosensor of the invention, and the discovery of agonists, antagonists, and mixtures of odorants for creating new odors, masking odors, enhancing odors, and designing odors.

  • Publication number: 20190374708
    Abstract: Examples of fluid delivery drive system and/or pump system that creates a vacuum in a fluid line for drawing and expelling fluid are provided. The vacuum may be created by separating two components that are positioned within the sealed fluid line. Once the two components are separated and the fluid is contained within the volume created between the separated components, the two components may be shuttled within the sealed volume. The movement of the two components can seal off an inlet to the fluid line and then open a pathway to an outlet from the fluid line while ensuring the created volume between the two components is maintained constant. The two components can then be moved back together to expel the fluid from the created volume through the outlet for delivery, for example, to a patient. Other examples are disclosed and described.

  • Publication number: 20190281823
    Abstract: Peroxyformic acid compositions for removal of biofilm growth and other contaminants and impurities from industrial processing hard surfaces are disclosed. In particular, peroxyformic acid compositions may be dosed on site and/or generated in situ for the reduction and prevention of biofilms on the hard surfaces. Methods of employing the peroxyformic acid compositions for removal of biofilm growth and other impurities such as aldehydes and alcohols from industrial CO2 effluent are also disclosed which beneficially provide ambient biofilm control and break down more rapidly than other peracids, allowing for extended runs between CIP cleaning, including a reduction and/or elimination of cleaning of the scrubbers and other industrial surfaces.
