“Thus, a patentee need not define his invention with mathematical precision in order to comply with the definiteness requirement.” Sonix Tech. Co. v. Publ’ns Int’l, Ltd., 844 F.3d 1370, 1377 (Fed. Cir. 2017) (quotation omitted). ...

The Specification states “a triangular-like shape is a triangle whose vertices are replaced with curved corners.” Spec. par. 38. We determine Appellant has defined explicitly the term “triangular-like shape.” “When a patentee defines a claim term, the patentee’s definition governs, even if it is contrary to the conventional meaning of the term.” Honeywell Int'l, Inc. v. Universal Avionics Sys. Corp., 493 F.3d 1358, 1361 (Fed. Cir. 2007). Even assuming Figures 3 and 7 depicted a triangle with one vertex replaced by a curved comer, we agree with Appellant that the other two vertices are “sharp or pointed and not curved.”
