A simple illustration might not need iterations or discussions but when it comes to complicated designs and complex innovations, communication between the inventor and the Patent illustrator plays a lead role.

If the communication skills of the illustrator are good then it would not only save time but also lessen the chances of errors in the Patent Drawings.
