Law - Drawing(s)

Drawings are an important means for disclosing an invention. While informal drawings can often be filed initially, care must be taken in following patent office rules concerning paper type and size, margins, line quality, numeral size, etcetera, in preparation of formal drawings.

The position of the USPTO on this issue is described in the following section(s) of the Manual of Patent Examining Procedure (MPEP):

MPEP 608.02 - Drawings
MPEP 608.02(b) - Informal Drawings
MPEP 608.02(d) - Complete Illustration in Drawings
MPEP 608.02(f) - Modification in Drawings
