Formal Patent Drawings / Illustrations
For a patent to be well understood, drawings play an important role. Well drafted drawings improve the readability of the patent, which is also a statutory requirement laid down by many PTOs across the world. Especially, Patents in technology fields like Mechanical, Life Sciences, Bio-Medical devices etc., one may not be able to understand the patent without the help of accurately drafted drawings.
Preparing drawings for the patents is, therefore, a very critical task during the drafting of the patent in which we not only have to draw a structural view of the invention, but we also have to show there functional behaviour. Although, most of the Patent offices across world follow PCT guidelines for patent drawings, there are certain differences – for example, Chinese patent office does not allow dashed or dotted lines in patent drawings.
