TECHNICAL DRAWINGS / PATENT FIGURES

What are patent drawings used for?

Patent applications and invention disclosures contain technical drawings and illustrations. For patent applications, the drawings maybe optional. However, as a general practice, it is recommended to provide a patent drawing in each case where drawable matter is claimed.

The illustration also enhances the understanding of the invention and directly improves the grant ability of a patent application.

Furthermore, if a patent is granted, patent drawings support the interpretation of the legal scope.

What must be considered when generating technical figures for patent applications?

These technical drawings must comply to the rules of related patent offices such as size of the paper, margins, line thicknesses, colors and numbering (EPO Rule 46 – Form of the drawings Art. 78 R. 48, 50, 57; USPTO Rule 1606).

In general, patent drawings need to be clear and relevant to the invention.
