- The full cost of filing and receiving a patent can be anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000 depending on what you need to complete the process. For those who have spent their entire lives developing an idea and a patentable process it can be incredibly frustrating to know you have to wait just that much longer to pay for the applications, legal forms, and most of all, the patent drawings necessary to move forward. But, if you have the right tools and the right knowledge of everything the government needs from you in a patent drawing, you can bypass much of what has plagued companies and inventors everywhere for decades. --
This book has been designed to guide you in the process of developing and producing your own patent drawings in a manner that ensures you can skip over an entire overly expensive step in the process, designing your own drawings and moving that much closer to your patents. You will learn the basics of drawing and using various perspectives to capture real world objects. Learn perspective foreshortening and how to effectively use a pen, ruler, and other drawing instruments. Learn the basics of drawing with a computer and how to use a camera to supplement your drawings. Learn what tools you need for your drawings and how to trace things to speed up the process. Learn how to draw from your imagination and how to draw to scale effectively. You will learn how to use graphical symbols and how to practice enough to get the process correct. --Book Jacket.
