Patent Drawings – Get them done by experts!

Patent drawings are one of the main elements of a patent application. Specialized drawings help totally cover invention and all embodiment of the invention. Detailed patent drawings can save you, if a main element or feature was by chance left out of the application draft. The USPTO regularly views drawings in order to find out what was disclosed at the time the Patent application was filed.

A patent drawing must be correct. It should reflect form, surface finish, and material of the subject matter. Certain elements of the subject may be lost, or sectioned for increased clarity. The composition must be pleasing and clearly visible. How the topic fills the space and the choice of viewing angle contribute to the overall effect. The Patent drawings should be developed by an expert who understands the complete PTO requirements. One should have complete knowledge of CAD tools and PTO rules and requirements

Before finalize the patent drawings Our team keep the following things in mind:

[1] How many views?
There should be as lots of views drawn as desirable to clearly disclose the invention and its novelty, i.e., front, and left sides, top and bottom. While not necessary, it is recommended that viewpoint be submitted to clearly show the shape and appearance of thee dimensional designs. For design patent drawings, if an outlook view is submitted, the surfaces shown would usually not be necessary to be illustrated in other views if these surfaces are clearly understood and disclosed in the outlook.
[2] Rules for Patent Drawing
Showing features clearly: It doesn’t matter whether you are showing a device, procedure or a design, putting each feature of the invention accurately on paper is significant. Patent illustration needs to document each feature of the invention precisely.
All we can say that we require to make certain that the patent examiner totally understand the aspect of the item without putting stress on their head. Failure to include all the particulars may lead to rejection of the patent. For instance if you have a drawing of a phone that has lots of features we require to show each feature of the mobile phone in such a way that anyone going through it can have a clear understanding of the invention.

Neatness: Even if, you draw current features of your invention correctly but the drawing has some strike-through, over writings and alterations you risk rejection. Though it is not documented anywhere that your patent illustration should be neat and clean still office like USPTO wish you to present a neat and error free drawing that is readable. At times people leave margin boxes, PTOs rejects drawings upon showing those margin boxes as well.

Legibility: Legibility is the capability to distinguish different letters and is another criterion a professional draft person wants to follow where every text, word and image should not overlap its adjacent element.

Readability: Readability is another measure that is not documented anyplace but we require following it during this whole process. Spacing within words, between words and between lines is such that the resulting text is again visually readable. Using text equal or larger than the minimum required size so that the examiner doesn’t reject because of the readability.
