Different Drawing Views
An object can be viewed from a large number of view angles – for example, from the front, top back or side, etc. A single figure or drawing can show an object only from one view angle and thus all-important figures can not be shown in one figure. Many parts of the object can be hidden in a single view. Therefore, when we aim to clearly explain the inventive steps using drawing while preparing patent applications we should draw all possible drawing views so that we cover all aspects of the invention.
For ready references, conventional names of view angles are used. Common views are listed below:
