    Abstract: In one embodiment, an enclosure generator automatically generates an enclosure for a device based on a three-dimensional (3D) model of a target surface and component instances that are associated with different positions within the device. In operation, the enclosure generator computes a surface region based on the target surface and the component instances. Subsequently, the enclosure generator computes a front panel model and a back structure model based on the surface region. Notably, the back structure model includes support structure geometries. Together, the front panel model and the back structure model comprise an enclosure model. The enclosure generator then stores the enclosure model or transmits the enclosure model to a 3D fabrication device. Advantageously, unlike conventional, primarily manual approaches to enclosure generation, the enclosure generator does not rely on the user possessing any significant technical expertise.

  • Patent number: 10564672
    Abstract: An electronics subassembly for a computing device that receives a pressing force from a user is disclosed. The electronics subassembly is mounted in the computing device using fasteners that are aligned parallel to the pressing force to prevent unwanted flexure of the electronics subassembly. The orientation of the fasteners requires holes to be form in a direction that is not suited for a standard tool. As a result, the manufacturing method includes forming the holes through an aperture in a sidewall of the housing of the computing device so that the bulk of the tool used for drilling is not constrained by the interior dimensions of the housing.

  • Patent number: 10512189
    Abstract: A server includes a housing, a sled, a cable sleeve mounted to the sled, and an obstruction in the housing. The housing defines a sled channel and a cable channel. The sled can be inserted into the sled channel. A cable is positioned in the cable sleeve. The obstruction is aligned with the cable channel. Prior to the sled being inserted into the housing, the cable sleeve is in a first position aligned with the obstruction and the cable channel. As the sled is inserted into the housing, contact between the cable sleeve and the obstruction moves the cable sleeve to a second position. In the second position, the cable sleeve is not aligned with the obstruction and is positioned in the sled channel. The cable sleeve is biased towards the first position. As the cable sleeve travels past the obstruction, the cable sleeve moves back to the first position.
