Patents by Inventor Vijay Kumar Baikampady Gopalkrishna

Vijay Kumar Baikampady Gopalkrishna has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20220076434
    Abstract: One embodiment can provide a system for detecting occlusion at an orifice of a three-dimensional (3D) printer nozzle while the printer nozzle is jetting liquid droplets. During operation, the system uses one or more cameras to capture an image of the orifice of the printer nozzle while the 3D printer nozzle is jetting liquid droplets. The system performs an image-analysis operation on the captured image to identify occluded regions within the orifice of the 3D printer nozzle, compute an occlusion fraction based on the determined occluded regions, and generate an output based on the computed occlusion fraction, thereby facilitating effective maintenance of the 3D printer.

  • Publication number: 20200210540
    Abstract: A system is provided for generating a custom article to fit a target surface. During operation, the system compares an input dataset with a number of cut template cut meshes. A respective cut template cut mesh includes one or more cutting paths that correspond to a boundary of the mesh. Next, the system identifies a template cut mesh that produces a closest match with the input dataset, and applies global geometric transformations to the identified template cut mesh to warp the template cut mesh to conform to the input dataset. The system further refines and projects a set of boundary and landmark points from the template cut mesh to the input dataset to define cutting paths for the input dataset. Next, the system applies cutting paths to the input dataset to produce a cut-and-trimmed mesh.
