Design patents

The design patents require 7 views of the object that is being patented. The input files are analyzed with the client’s instructions, if any, to ascertain the number of views required for the design patent. Sometimes, if only a specific part of an object is claimed in the patent application, the number of views may reduce accordingly. Apart from this, the client sometimes requires more views depending on the clarity with the standard views to represent the object. In this case, the client adds more perspective views, sometimes a cut away view, if the object is inside a larger object or is a part of a more complex assembly, etc. These details are confirmed with the client before the illustration begins.

If the input files are photographs, then the photographs are aligned to match view-by view and then clarification /confirmation is asked to the client to see if he is satisfied with the layout of the drawings.

Utility patents

The utility patents are the type where an application, a procedure, an object, a consumer good, an equation, or any such thing can be patented, with the claim of the working of the object as well. The analysis of the utility patent input files involves checking which parts of the patent are claimed and which are not. Secondly, a confirmation with the client is made regarding whether the client requires us to put the references while the drawings are processed, or if he would like to add them once he views the formal drawings. The description of the application is sometimes requested if the application / process requires an understanding. Based on this, sometimes, it is suggested to the client that he should go for fewer / additional drawings.
