Purpose of the patent illustration

Patent illustrations can help clarify complex details of an invention, such as the size, shape, and composition of its various parts. We can provide accurate and detailed 2-D representations of an invention or object that can be easily understood by an ordinary individual, and we can also illustrate the invention's structure, operation, and unique features, helping the patent examiner determine whether the invention is novel, non-obvious, and eligible for patent protection.

In addition, patent drawings can help to avoid misunderstandings or ambiguities that may arise from the written description of an invention. By providing a visual representation of the invention, patent drawings can help ensure that the patent examiner understands the invention's intended purpose, function, and design.

Types of patent drawings and illustrations

Design Patent Drawing: A design patent protects the ornamental appearance of a product or device, e.g., the shape, design, or configuration of an object. It grants the patent owner a right to exclude others from making, using, or selling an otherwise similar device that includes the same or similar ornamental features.

Utility Patent Drawing: A utility patent is the most common type of patent; it protects the functional aspects of your invention so that others can’t make, use, sell, or import it. Utility drawings define complex inventions and play a crucial role in the patent application process. It is important to ensure those drawings are simple, clear, and accurate.
