I can generate PTO-acceptable drawings for most
patent applications using computer-aided- design (CAD) software and a laser
printer. I usually prepare patent drawings as part of a patent application,
but I also prepare patent drawings as a separate service.
- High-quality drawings in PTO-acceptable
- Drawings are stored digitally to facilitate
- Drawings prepared by the same person
who prepares the patent application, insuring that drawings completely correspond
to and adequately support the application
- Minimal time required to "get your idea
across" to me
- Patent drawings prepared as part of
- As part of the preparation of your patent application,
I prepare the drawings required to adequately disclose your invention. The
drawings are prepared as PTO-acceptable formal drawings. These may include
a number of different views, including plan, elevation, perspective, section,
exploded, and detail views. Each view incorporates reference characters to
label various elements of your invention, and these reference characters
are referred to in the written portions of the application. Different embodiments
of your invention may be depicted in separate drawings. Drawings of relevant
prior art may also be included when helpful to distinguish your invention.
Concurrent preparation of the drawings along with the application by the
same person (i.e., me) insures complete consistency between the drawings
and the application, and adequate support of the application by the drawings.
- Patent drawings prepared independently
- If an application has already been prepared
and/or filed, I can prepare PTO-acceptable formal drawings to conform to and
support the application, as described above.
- Patent drawings prepared from CAD
- If you already have drawings prepared
using CAD software (such as AutoCad), I can import the files in their native
format (.dwg, .dxf) and make the modifications required to produce PTO-acceptable
formal drawings. This results in significant reductions of time and cost to
produce the drawings.
- Patent drawing modifications
- Since all drawings are prepared using
CAD software and stored digitally, subsequent modification of the drawings
can be made quickly and with minimal additional cost. Modifications are charged
at the standard hourly rate, but I do not charge for modifications required
by the PTO merely to meet standards for formal drawings.
