Meet the Team

Richard Drennan – Director

Richard is Aberdeen born and bred; a technical geek who confesses to being something of a petrol-head.

Richard’s technical career began with Aker Kvaerner (now Akersolutions) progressing from trainee technician to senior engineer over a 14 year period in the Subsea Control Systems environment. This was followed by more customer facing roles in the BD and commercial areas before taking up a position with Centrica Energy in 2014.

Through his AM based business ‘Form 3D Services’ Richard has extensive experience in additive manufacturing, prototyping and 3d based design, having completed projects for some of Aberdeen’s best known companies.

After hours Richard can often be found working on or driving an iconic 80s car, a long term labour of love.

Chris Harvey, MSc BSc (Hons)  – Director

Chris has a genuine passion for the technical world and spent 7 years working in Subsea Inspection for Subsea7. This followed on from spells at Cranfield and Plymouth Universities, gaining degrees in Mechanical design and Offshore & Ocean technology.

Under the cover of ‘Hydra Research & Leak Heat’ Chris has been an early adopter of photogrammetry & point cloud engineering techniques which has relied upon his photography skills to perfect the end results. To date, Chris has produced some of the most detailed and accurate photography based 3d models you will find.

Chris spends his free time enjoying macro photography and the Scottish outdoors (under and above the water).
