Is your patent application complete without an illustration/drawing or a diagram? Nope, it is not!!
An illustration/drawing/diagram is an imperative factor of a patent application because it enables a better understanding of your invention to the common man. The patent law of most countries mandates the requirement of illustrations. Patent illustrations are highly advantageous to accelerate this complete process and to fully convince the examiner.
An illustration is a 2-dimensional diagram that replicates an invention. It helps in understanding the invention easily and in a better way compared to reams of description. Clear, accurate diagrams enhance the patent applications by helping out the overloaded patent examiners to comprehend inventions quicker.
Illustrations also prove quite useful in case of patent infringement. Precise, simple and clear drawings often aid the patent owner’s claims to instruct the judge and clinch the final decision in their favour. Illustrations of your invention also come handy to the patent holders when negotiating settlement and damages. Patent illustrations prepared meticulously and unambiguously may mean that all potential infringers will think twice before copying your invention.
Importance of drawings in patent applications should not be underestimated by patent filers. All around the world patent offices pay much attention to the technical details of the illustrations they approve, but the applicant should not just consider meeting those requirements only. The safest bet for a patent applicant to get their invention approved is to use the services of a professional patent illustration company that specializes in all kinds of patent drawings like utility drawing, design drawings, technical drawings, mechanical drawings etc and has proper knowledge of the demands that various patent offices have across the world.
