  • Patent number: 10788811
    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.

    Abstract: A mounting device includes a mounting box, a tray, and a sliding mechanism. The mounting box includes a bottom plate. The sliding mechanism includes a handle and at least one driving member. The driving member is movably coupled to the handle. In a pull configuration of the sliding mechanism, when the handle is rotated toward the bottom plate, the driving member is driven to drive the tray to move along a first direction, and when the handle is rotated away from the bottom plate, the tray is not driven to move. In a push configuration of the sliding mechanism, when the handle is rotated toward the bottom plate, the tray is not driven to move, and when the handle is rotated away from the bottom plate, the driving member is driven to drive the tray to move toward a second direction opposite to the first direction.
