Throughout the Invention process an Inventor must obtain several types of design which can be performed through an Invention Design Service. The first initial design created within the life of an Invention is the Conceptual Design. This is more or less the general look of an invention without specific dimensions associated with it. Several Invention Drafting Services online can assist Inventors with this, but any Inventor should try to find one of these services that also do the Patent Drawings. I have heard of so many Inventors that made the mistake of using different design services for the same Invention or Prototype. They normally provide discounted pricing due to the fact Your obtaining more than one service, and that’s how they can afford to do so.
CAD Design Software
The idea behind a Patent Drawing is to demonstrate to the patent office what an Inventors proposed Invention looks like as well as it’s functionality. Without these Patent Drawings it would be hard for the people reviewing the patents specifications to fully understand all the information necessary to approve the patent. CAD Designers can produce these drawings with software known as CAD. One Invention Design Service should be able to produce not only Your Conceptual Design, and Patent Drawings, but also your completed 3D CAD Model. If You use more than one of these Invention Design Services than Your making a huge mistake.
3D CAD Models
If Your unaware of what CAD actually is it’s the acronym for Computer Aided Design or Computer Aided Drafting. When an Inventor has any of the several designs needed for their Inventions production the Designer will use this CAD software to develop them. The CAD file is very versatile in the sense that it can produce Patent Blueprints, Conceptual Designs, Renderings, and the 3D Model used to create Rapid Prototypes as well as Injection Molds. Anything designed today is done so with 3D CAD Models otherwise known as CAD manufacturing files. This method of designing Inventions and Prototypes will continue to be the main procedure for a long time to come.
Once the Patent Drawings are completed the next step for the Inventor is to have a Rapid Prototype made. Rapid Prototypes allow an Inventor to physically feel their Invention and review it for any changes that may be needed before mass production begins. The machine used to create Rapid Prototypes is known as a 3D Printer. This complex machine develops Rapid Prototypes by creating layer upon layer of specified material until the Prototype is made. This process is much more affordable than You might imagine and can usually be done within one day. It is always a good idea to have a Rapid Prototype made before moving into mass production with Injection Molds. This small investment ensures You get exactly what You want before You invest in any type of Injection Mold. Always remember to try and find an online Invention Design Service to provide all Your design needs so You can save time, money, and a serious headache.
