Demonstratives: Enhanced Patent Drawings

Recently, ThemeVision was asked to help show technologies described in patent language. The original patent drawings were not sufficiently able to show the directions of air currents circulating through the device. The language of the patent accurately described this pathway, but without an enhanced visualization, the description was unclear to lay audience. Because the patent claims were directly tied to this airflow, it was essential to illustrate the movement of air in the device.
ThemeVision artist David Bartholomew used a combination of the original patent drawings and 3D modeling to illustrate the flow. Relevant surfaces and parts were modeled to precisely show how the air flowed in a way that words and descriptors could not.
