Leeds-based Formation 3D (F3D) has launched into the UK market this week offering drone and 3D packages for data capture and visual B2B services.

Founded by business partners Ross Hamilton and Nathan McNamara, Formation 3D aims to fill a gap in the market by providing a one stop shop for all drone, ground based technology and 3D services.

F3D’s expert offerings include Aerial Inspections that capture high quality images and videos of places normally difficult and unsafe to reach in person; Land Surveys that deliver topographic data; 360 Aerial Tours that showcase footage on an interactive level with maximum detail; 3D Mapping that can be turned into models for construction and design projects, as well as traditional Photography and Video.

Managing director, Nathan McNamara, said “Our vision is to provide a technology driven solution to the marketplace. Combining Ross’s skills in photography, digital development and piloting with our team’s sector specific experience, F3D can ensure image and data capture is carried out efficiently, safely, sustainably and to the highest standards.”

Although their primary target sectors are Construction, Infrastructure and Transport, Public Sector, Agriculture, Real Estate and Conservation, Formation 3D’s services are also available to any organisation UK-wide that would benefit from drone and 3D technology.

Ross Hamilton, who is an experienced CAA qualified drone operator said “The advantages of using 3D data capture and drone technology are significant, allowing us to survey large areas in a fraction of the time and safely inspect hard to reach areas in a cost-effective manner. At F3D we believe no job is too big or too small, and we look forward to working with clients across the UK.”

To mark the launch of Formation 3D, the team have put together a package of launch events, including a visit to the Hundred Cricket Competition, the national Three-Peaks Challenge and a Prize draw for would-be drone pilots. Follow F3D on Instagram for prize draw details.
