  • Patent number: 10800099
    Abstract: A build plate system for a heated deposition three-dimensional printer includes a plurality of sheets, the plurality of sheets arranged in a stack on a build plate and a glue portion between each of the plurality of sheets. The glue portion is configured to hold a sheet to the stack and release the sheet from the stack when receiving heat from a nozzle of the three-dimensional printer. A method for operating a build plate system includes the steps of printing an object onto a top-most sheet of a plurality of sheets arranged in a stack, positioning the nozzle of the three-dimensional printer in thermal contact with the glue portion, applying heat to the glue portion by nozzle to release the top-most sheet from the stack, and moving the top-most sheet off of the stack into a target area using different methods of placing the nozzle into contact with the top-most sheet from the stack.

  • Publication number: 20140190620
    Abstract: A layer system comprises an application layer assembly including a functional layer and an adhesive for adhering the application layer assembly to a carrier, and a transport layer assembly including a carrier layer and an adhesive for adhering the transport layer assembly to the application layer assembly. The application layer assembly can be applied to the carrier by adhering the layer system to the carrier; correcting a position of the layer system relative to the carrier by releasing the adhesive adherence of the application layer assembly to the carrier by pulling at least one tab of the transport layer assembly in a first direction; re-adhering of the layer system to the carrier; and releasing the transport layer assembly from the application layer assembly by pulling the at least one tab of the transport layer assembly in a second direction different from the first direction.

  • Publication number: 20140193600
    Abstract: A new device that repairs a broken, cracked or bent wood or faux wood horizontal/venetian window blind slat or shutter slat. The device is a thin transparent square piece of enhanced extrusion lamination film with a clear adhesive on one side. Comprised of two different version types, one WITH and one WITHOUT a route hole (where the cord goes through on a window blind) on the film surface. A pliable slit on the version WITH a route hole allows the user to insert the blind cord running through the route hole into the die-cut oval area of the device so that it can be placed directly over the route hole on the blind slat to repair a blind slat damaged at the route hole. Both version types restore the damaged slat to its original functionality without having to totally replace the entire window blind or shutter or use unsightly tape, glue or a clamp.
