Patent Drawings

A view of invention

Drawing

Patent drawing rules are a bit peculiar and limiting. This is especially true in view of modern computers which have revolutionized drawing technologies in nearly every field imaginable. Not patents. The patent rules leave us in the dark ages.

Patent drawings are not typically like engineering drawings. Engineering drawings are meant to provide a very high level of detail. Patent drawings are meant to provide a high level of breadth. These two conflicting objectives can prevent one from using engineering drawings in a patent application. For this reason, it is sometimes best to hire a patent draftsmen familiar with the rules and objectives of patent applications. You might find any one of the following useful in assisting you with your patent drawings.

Since patents are quite similar from nation to nation, it is possible to file a single patent application with the Patent Cooperation Treaty guidelines and prosecute the application singly in the first few years.  After the application matures, the application is granted at each national patent office.  In this way, it is possible to save a considerable amount of money avoiding patent development fees at every nation.  Because patent principles such as 'obviousness' and 'inventive step' have different standards, a PCT application should account for each of these.
