Drawing changes may require changes in the patent specification and additional expense to the inventor. Filing informal drawings always leads to the filing of new drawings, with the changes incorporated therein. Filing formal drawings at the time of patent filing is advised. Corrective action to informal drawings is required in a short statutory period. Failure to take corrective action will result in abandonment of the application. All changes must be approved by the examiner. No new matter will be permitted, unless the examiner has approved the proposed changes. Employing competent patent illustrators alleviates the time and expense these problems cause. Free Consultation About Your Patent Illustrations.

There are three important reasons why it is good to do this. One, to help you keep your reference numerals straight. So you do not use the same number for different parts. Two, to help you keep your words straight. I mean, to avoid using different terms for the same part. Three, to provide an easily accessible means for the patent illustrator to instantly identify any part or reference number, of the invention.
