Regardless of who you are, we can help you, not only with your patent, but with much more.
From experience, we know that people in your position have lots of questions about patents. Getting patent help means getting answers to these questions. To assist you, we’ve compiled some frequently asked questions–and answers–about patent help:
1) Is your idea just a concept in your head that you are looking to protect before you go any further?
If this is the case, you may be in need of an industrial designer. Industrial designers specialize in the design, ergonomics, and aesthetics of new products. They can assess your idea and, based on your target market, make sure it fits the needs and wants of the consumers you are trying to reach. So before you request patent help and submit your idea for a patent, make sure it looks right and meets the needs of consumers.
2) Do you have your idea sketched, drawn, hand-drawn, hand-rendered, or even doodled?
Great! But before you request patent help, you need to make sure your idea is feasible and functional. A team of industrial designers and mechanical engineers can get involved at this stage to ensure it is possible to manufacture your idea. Mechanical engineers can begin forming your idea into a CAD model, which can then become the basis for the figures needed for your patent drawings. This step is a head start to the patent help you need.
3) Is your idea in some sort of CAD software, either Solidworks, Catia, Ryno or any 3D program?
Fantastic. If you already know the look of your idea and that it’s possible to manufacture it, our team can create patent figures from your 3D model. At this point, the only patent help you need is matching the perspectives and views to the writing of your patent.
4) If you are ready to go with drawings and just need patent help in the areas of writing and filing, you are in the right place.
We can help! Being a product design firm, we understand how the patent information has to relate to each drawing. We also know how to present this information to a patent firm, ensuring that your patent has all the right information in all the right places.
5) Have you hand-drawn your patent drawings and have them ready to file, but need computer-drawn versions?
Not to worry. We will draft each figure and clean up your sketches or drawings.
6) Do you have all your computer-made drawings ready to file, but need someone to help number the drawings in a way that meets USPTO specs?
Not a problem. We can number your figures and set them up with the proper margins.
