    CAD Generated Utility Patent Drawings

    M. B.

      Has anyone used SolidWorks or any other CAD software to prepare utility patent drawings?

      If yes, would you provide the patent number so I can look at what was accepted by the USPTO?

       

      I’m looking for examples of issued patents where patent illustrators were not used (CAD only) to prepare the drawings.  I am particularly interested in patents that do not have linear or stippled shading or, if shading was used, how it was done with modern CAD software techniques.
