Online patent design services are a must for inventors going through the process of submitting a patent. The reason why inventors need help from these design companies is that most are not familiar with using CAD which is the primary way to design anything being manufactured today.
Patent design services can help inventors with patent drawings and other design related aspects of the invention. These online invention drafting services can be found by using any major search engine like Google, or Yahoo. When researching one of the design companies try to find one that can help with creating a CAD manufacturing file for rapid prototyping needs, conceptual designs, your patent drawings, and your manufacturing CAD part files. Other things to look for with an invention design company are their ability to help you with your product marketing. Marketing inventions or products includes the services of logo design, branding, website design, SEO, and other forms of online marketing to get your product in front of the intended and potential customers for your invention.
CAD Design Companies
CAD design companies are the ones who physically do the invention design work with computer software. CAD is the most important aspect of having a invention or prototype designed, and is something any inventor should familiarize their self with if submitting a patent to the USPTO. To fully understand what CAD is you should know that it is the acronym for computer aided design or computer aided drafting. CAD software is a very versatile program which allows several aspects of design to be done. CAD files can be used to create patent drawings, blueprints, 3D models, renderings, CNC metal designs, ABS, rapid prototypes, ABS products, injection molds, and almost any material used today in manufacturing. CAD invention companies use this versatile software program to develop anything imaginable as well as 3D animations, and the projected engineering affects applied to specified materials. Invention design companies can fully evaluate every aspect of an Inventors design before it’s mass-produced.
Rapid prototypes can be produced from specially formatted CAD files made to operate with the machinery that operates 3D Printers for creating prototypes. 3D printers are complex machines that use CAD files to create products out of materials such as ABS through a process of layering. This layering process is done by laying one layer of the specified prototype material upon another until it’s built up to create a prototype. In areas where the prototype is hollow a filler is used as a secondary material. After the prototype cools down and hardens it is placed into a solvent bath. The bath dissolves the un-wanted material and your left with a flawless prototype. Before deciding to do any major manufacturing make sure you invest in a rapid prototype to ensure the design is exactly what you want, and to check it for defects. In the scheme of things it’s a small price to pay before investing in an injection mold which can cost several thousand compared to several hundred.
