Examples of Diagrams Useful for Patent Drawing

Many different types of diagrams may be used to create a patent drawing. You may need to create an electrical diagram to explain how something will work. A flowchart can illustrate a sequence of steps and a process. You can also show hierarchies or a mock up of an web or app interface.

Many diagrams in SmartDraw have built-in smarts and automation to help you draw more quickly. You can also choose to create a manual diagram and use SmartDraw in much the same way you would a CAD program.
