Impact of Submitted Image Quality on Final Patent Drawings

The quality of the image you submit to your patent illustrator can significantly impact the final outcome of your drawings. This article illustrates the differences between submitting low-quality versus high-quality images for your patent drawings. 

Low-Quality Image Submitted:

A Road to Complications

When a low-quality image is submitted, it sets the stage for a series of challenges. These images often provide only a vague understanding of the subject, leaving much to interpretation.

Another consequence of submitting such images is an increased turnaround time. Frequent back-and-forth communication with the client is needed to clarify details, often obscured or missing in the image. This not only delays the process but also adds layers of complexity to a task that should be straightforward.

The accuracy of the final drawing suffers as well. With insufficient detail to go on, the illustrator may have to make educated guesses, leading to a final product that might not accurately represent the intended design. The result is often a simplified drawing that lacks the specifics that could be crucial for a patent application.

Common formats of low-quality images include:

  • Adobe Photoshop (.psd)
  • bitmap (.bmp)
  • graphics interchange format (.gif)
  • joint photographic experts group (.jpg)
  • MS Word (.docx)
  • portable network graphics (.png)
  • tag image file format (.tiff)

 

High-Quality Image Submitted:

Streamlining Success

In contrast, submitting a high-quality image can significantly streamline the drawing process. These images provide a clear, detailed view of the subject, eliminating guesswork.

With high-quality images, the illustrator can quickly grasp the intricacies of the design. This precision translates to a more accurate, detailed, and professional-looking patent drawing. The turnaround time is also significantly reduced since there’s less need for clarification and revisions. The result is a high-fidelity drawing that accurately represents the inventor’s vision and details, potentially strengthening the patent application.

High-quality formats include:

  • Adobe Illustrator (.ai)
  • Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)
  • AutoCAD Drawing (.dwg)
  • AutoCAD Drawing Interchange Format (.dxf)
  • eDrawings (.eprt)
  • Encapsulated Postscript (.eps)
  • SolidWorksPart (.sldprt)
  • S.T.E.P. (.stp)
  • Rhino 3D Model (.3dm)

The quality of the image you submit for your patent drawings can be the difference between a smooth, efficient process and a prolonged, complicated one. By choosing high-quality images, you not only save time but also ensure a more accurate representation of your invention. In the world of patents, where details matter, supplying the best quality image is a small but critical step towards securing the best outcome for your patent application.
