While Appellant argues that Caldwell does not teach the specific dimensions claimed, Appellant offers no explanation as to why the claimed device would perform any differently than the device of Caldwell. See Gardner v. TEC Systems, Inc., 725 F.2d 1338 (Fed. Cir. 1984) (where the only difference between the prior art and the claims was a recitation of relative dimensions of the claimed device and a device having the claimed relative dimensions would not perform differently than the prior art device, the claimed device was not patentably distinct from the prior art device). Thus, Appellant does not apprise us of error.

Gardner v. TEC Systems, Inc., 725 F.2d 1338, 220 USPQ 777 (Fed. Cir. 1984) 2144.04
