Different techniques for Patent drawing

Patent Illustrations are wonderful for a patent application, but they don’t always do the invention justice if you are trying to capture the attention of a prospective licensee, or if you are trying to convince a buyer to place orders or sell the invention in their store.
Patent Illustrations and other types of invention drawings, such as 3D renderings and photo realistic virtual prototypes serve different purposes.  These drawings are done by using different techniques like by using Auto CAD software, by taking photographs, solidwork files and drawings from rough sketches.
CAD (computer-aided drafting or design) is a software used by inventors, architects, and other design professionals to visualize inventions, products, tools, machinery, and other devices. CAD programs provide a way of modeling these products in 2D or 3D perspectives. Modern CAD software is easy to use. It produces accurate drawings. A CAD program will enable us to construct an accurate, three dimensional (3D) representation model of the presentation model within the computer. A 3D model is typically built by using and modifying basic geometric building blocks, such as boxes, cylinders, planes, and custom-defined shapes.
Photographs or photomicrographs are acceptable as formal drawings in utility applications if they are used to show fine and irregular or natural structures that are not capable of being illustrated with black line Patent Drawings - for example, electrophoresis gels, blots, autoradiographs, cell cultures, histological tissue cross sections, animals, plants, in vivo imaging, thin layer chromatography plates, metallurgical microstructures, textiles, and crystalline structures. Photography cannot be used for illustrating non tangible inventions and graphical representations, such as schematic diagrams, charts, etc. In design applications, acceptable photographs include those that show subtle ornamental effects. We use a digital camera and 35 mm film camera. A photograph can be converted into a line drawing by putting a piece of paper of it and tracing it with pencil or, by scanning it into a computer and tracing it with a CAD program. 
The quick pen or pencil sketches allow the designer to try out several ideas and zero in on the most likely layouts before beginning a project. We make rough sketches of the images and show it to the customer. Please click HERE to Order your Patent Drawings & Illustrations.
