Third, the Examiner reversibly erred in determining that “[t]he conical shape” recited in the pulling step (at line 11 of claim 1) “need not be exactly the same as the conical shape at the end of the method” or, in other words, “the preamble is not construed as requiring the exact same shape at the end of the method as was created by ‘forming the conical shape’” as recited at line 11. Ans. 3–4. We disagree because “the conical shape” recited in line 11 derives antecedent basis from the recitation of “a conical shape” in the preamble. Given the grammar of the claim, “the conical shape” must be interpreted as referring to the only conical shape set forth in the claim, i.e., the conical shape recited in the preamble. See In re Fought, 941 F.3d 1175, 1178 (Fed. Cir. 2019) (holding the preamble limiting where the limitation reciting “the travel trailer” in the body of the claim relied on the preamble’s recitation of “[a] travel trailer” for its antecedent basis).
