Straight Line Services has been providing patent drawing services to attorney's and individual inventor’s alike since 1991.  We like to think of the drawings we produce as works of art.  My team uses AutoCAD and Solidworks as the main tools to complete these tasks.  We do regularly utilize PhotoShop Elements and VISIO as well.  It does not matter if it's a utility, design, chemical, or trademark drawing, SLS have extensive experience drawing every type of patent illustration imaginable.  All work is completed in the USA by Straight Line Services employees - we do NOT outsource/export any drawing work.

We have over 20 years of engineering drafting support background and would consider visualization, communication and comprehension as our strong points making the drawing task quick and easy.  You don't have to spend wasted time explaining how your invention works.  We understand your needs and thereby facilitating completion of each project that much easier.

  • Software: AutoCAD, Solidworks, VISIO, and compatible with most others

  • Patent Drawings sent via the internet using Adobe Acrobat-PDF

  • Prompt, predictable, on-time service with overnight turn-around when needed for your intellectual property drawing needs

  • Can accept any type of input - sketches, photos, any type of electronic file or actual prototype

  • Can provide editable drawing files as needed


What type of input do we need from you to get the patent drawing completed?

We can use whatever material you have to get the job done from sketches, photo's, engineering drawings, CAD files or the actual item can be sent to me.

If I have CAD files, what format do you need from me?

SLS can pretty much take any CAD file format out there. Anything that is compatible with AutoCAD or Solidworks will work. Specifically, files with the extensions - .dwg, .iges, .igs, .stp, .step, .sldasm (this one needs all the part files as well), and numerous others as well.

When taking pictures to send to you, what is the best way to do that?

First, try to be at eye level with the object so if you have to put it up on a shelf or you kneel down, eye level is best. Second, don't stand too close to the object. Stand back as far as practical and zoom in to fill the camera screen. This greatly reduces capturing a distorted image of the object. *Click here to learn how to photograph designs
