Patent Illustrations / Drawings

Patent Drawings – Get them done by experts!

Patent drawings are one of the main elements of a patent application. Specialized illustrations help entirely cover invention and all embodiment of the invention. Detailed patent drawings could save you if a primary component or feature was by chance left out of the application draft. The USPTO regularly views drawings 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. Some aspects of the subject may be lost or sectioned for increased clarity. The composition must be pleasing and 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 comprehensive knowledge of CAD tools and PTO rules and requirements.

  • Rough sketches
  • Scanned photographs and/or pictures.
  • Videos
  • 3D Models if we have any

AutoCAD, CorelDraw, Microsoft Visio, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and SolidWorks, etc.

What formats do we deliver in?

Primarily PDFs, CDR (CorelDraw files), VSD (Visio files), DWG (AutoCAD files), SLD, Ai, JPEG, PNG, Docx, and PPT, etc.

Before finalizing the patent drawings Our team keeps the following things in mind:

[1] How many views?

There should be as lots of views drawn as desirable to disclose the invention and its novelty, i.e., front, and left sides, top and bottom. While not necessary, it is recommended that viewpoint is submitted to show the shape and appearance of thee dimensional designs clearly. For design patent drawings, if an outlook view is presented, 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 element of the invention accurately on paper is significant. Patent illustration needs to document each feature of the invention precisely.
All we can say is that we require to make sure that the patent examiner entirely understands 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 the 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 to or larger than the minimum required size so that the examiner doesn’t reject because of the readability.
