  • Patent number: 11108201
    Abstract: A modular system comprising electrical consuming units and an electrical connection unit. The connection unit has a contact plug for plugging into a power outlet and for electrical connection with a particular cable connecting an electrical terminal and distribution strip as well as one connecting the terminal and distribution strip to the contact plug. The consuming units have first connection elements for mechanical and electrical connecting to second connection elements on the terminal and distribution strip. The first connection elements are geometrically different depending on a maximum electrical power consumption of the respective consuming unit. The second connection elements are likewise geometrically different such that selected first connection elements cannot be connected to selected second connection elements.

  • Publication number: 20200139436
    Abstract: Methods for producing an object by generative manufacturing, a component, and a computer-readable medium. In one method, a sheet-like part is formed with bulges. In another method, a supporting structure is formed with an arch formed by arch segments converging in the buildup direction and meet at an arch tip. In another method, a supporting structure is formed with a strut of a cloverleaf-like cross-sectional shape. In another method, a supporting structure is formed with a sheet-like part connected to the object and formed to project obliquely forward from the object in the buildup direction. In another method, a supporting structure is formed with a sheet-like part extending substantially along the buildup direction, the sheet-like part formed with apertures.
