In case you are not aware of this, the USPTO has certain standards that should be met when submitting patent drawings for a patent application. A professional patent drawing can also be used to give everyone a better idea of what your invention is and how it is supposed to work.
Why Should You Consider Patent Drawings Done By A Professional?
A patent drawing may not be a strict requirement for every patent application that is submitted in the United States, but a drawing will be required when a USPTO examiner needs to fully understand something in your invention. So this basically means an inventor should get in the practice of submitting patent drawings with almost every application.
If you fail to submit a patent drawing with your patent application, the USPTO may not be able to make a determination on if your invention that you have discussed in your application is the same. To avoid any confusions and instant rejections, you should always submit a patent application with a patent drawing.
As mentioned above, the USPTO has several guidelines that are specific, and they must be followed when submitting your documents. There is a requirement that the drawings are in black ink. Sometimes color drawings are permitted, but this is only if it is necessary to understand the invention. If you are submitting an electronic filing, color drawings are generally not accepted.
