Before we head to the term patent illustrations it’s important to understand the term illustration first :-
The art of reproducing a real-time object or a functional model of a depiction into a 2-dimensional platform so that a common man can easily understand it is termed as an illustration.
What is the need of having patent illustration services?
There is a need of reproducing they image of an object in the simplest way so that a layman can understand it. Therefore ,we can conclude the paramount importance of patent illustration services .
Patent illustrations are composed of patent drawings, patent figures, and patent images. There lies the paramount importance of including these things in the application as they make the patent application looks more authentic.
Someone has greatly said
“Even the simplest picture is equivalent to a thousand words, that is a picture can say a thousand words at a moment.
The patent law actually demands that the patent application must be necessarily equipped with at least one drawing if at any point within the application .
What does a drawing shall include in itself?
You should draw the in such a way so that it becomes easy to be understood and can be read very well.
What advantage does a well depicted illustration gives to the application?
A well-defined figure acts as an added advantage for an applicant and makes it more admissible for the examiner as well as for the common person to easily understand and approve the idea as the phrase Would really suggest.
A marvelous patent illustration not only makes the patent drafting easier ,but also it accelerates the entire process, along with the execution of the application .However ,it can be concluded that illustration of an application is equally efficacious as that ofthe drafting of the application and that too also requires the same amount of proficiency, skill and conscientiousness that a draft demands from the application.
The Indian patent and design offices formulated some of the criterias like what should be the paper size, margins, and durability of the patient and also the color of the design is taken into consideration that is it should be black and white.
This statement is true to some extent however if we do talk it in regards perspective of chemical compounds or composition. It has been rightly observed that all the fields of inventions can be jammed in some figures, which means the examiner will end up asking the applicant to present a diagram so that it would enable them to reach up with a crystal clear projection of the invention. Moreover, the patent document is written in a specific format, and therefore the understanding of the patent is possible in the summary and that is why the detailed understanding is being facilitated by the drawings or illustrations.
For instance, if we talk about it from the mechanical invention point of view, patent illustrations are of the utmost importance as these show the different parts and points of attachment for each of them. And also, if we are wishing for the illustrations so as to fall within the domain of the regulation and for complex illustrations, we can take the assistance of AUTOCAD as well. We at digital Suntech, have professionals who are also having experience with AUTOCAD so that they can work on such illustrations. Also, our professionals are well conversant with other tools that are being required for such illustration that does include Corel Draw and MS Visio. Moreover, we can come to a conclusion that it is not sufficient to have only had a mere understanding of the tool, rather we should have a thorough understanding of the product and what actually it is, along with experience in technical domains, which helps us to reach the final illustrations.
A lot of people are able to understand the inventions just by giving a look at our drawings alone. Some people are oriented more towards the pictures rather than the words. That is they are able to get the patent illustrations better than the words. This is the time when a patent illustrator comes into the picture. A patent illustrator is someone who is experienced and has a sound knowledge of visually representing the structures, machinery, and biological elements like the change in the DNA STRAND.
We also do take care of some of the important elements such as novelty and inventive steps that can add up to our drawings. A patent drawing should be someone that has the ability to convey each element of the invention as that mentioned in the description.
A competent patent illustrator is one who does give advice and follows the territorial guidelines that have been provided by their patent offices.
How does our team take care of the illustrations?
Our team does work closely with the inventors or clients and it also allows for multiple iterations till than final illustration matches the satisfaction of the inventor and that too is in accordance with the invention as well as are in compliance with the specific jurisdiction for which that is filed.
