Bring Your Patent Drawings To Life: A 3D World for a 2D Drawing
If you've ever tried a patent case, you know first hand how difficult it can be to educate the average juror (or judge) on complex technologies. In a world full of two dimensional patent drawings -- it's important to remember that jurors and judges see things in a three dimensional world. Making a patent drawing "come to life" in the third dimension can sometimes make the difference in helping the lay person understand how a patent works and more importantly -- why your argument is the strongest.
The example above takes a two dimensional patent figure and helps bring it into the third dimension. The tools used to create this demonstrative are: PowerPoint, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe After Effects.
