Since Hawk 3D Proto‘s inception in 2013, the English 3D printing retailer hasn’t stopped expanding. Just in the past few months the company has signed new distribution agreements with 3D printing giants such as WASP and Zortrax, and it has been aggressive in racing to be the first in line to carry the newest and best materials. Hawk 3D Proto’s efforts have paid off as it’s become a very well-stocked retailer of 3D printers and materials, as well as a 3D printing bureau. Now, in addition to adding to its rapidly growing inventory, the company is focusing its efforts on customer experience by designing an interactive e-commerce website.
“Designed for ease of use, the website allows visitors to the site to independently explore the company’s wide portfolio of 3D printers and 3D printing supplies — and, should they wish to do so, buy online,” said Ben Hawksworth, Founder and CEO of Hawk 3D Proto. “We’re really excited about this development because as we continue to expand the range of 3D printers that we offer, it will make it easier for our customers to find the right solution for them.”
In addition to WASP and Zortrax, Hawk 3D Proto also carries printers from BeeVeryCreative, BCN3D, and Airwolf, plus a wide variety of 3D printing materials. The redesigned site is more than just an online shopping center, though. It’s also a resource for furthering one’s knowledge about 3D printing. Videos and tutorials about the various 3D printers in Hawk 3D Proto’s stock are now available, plus a new video tour of the company’s physical showroom, which is located in West Yorkshire.
“We have also developed the site so that it can become a reliable resource for learning about 3D printing and a source for further exploration beyond the online environment,” said Hawksworth. “There is a great introductory video that allows you to see the Hawk 3D proto showroom – a first class facility set up by the company to allow more people to get hands-on with the technology…But if online is not enough — and let’s be honest, with 3D printing online is great to get insight but it is often not enough to get real understanding when you want to get fully involved — visits to the showroom can be arranged by appointment, and workshops can be set up for companies and individuals alike.”
To arrange a visit to Hawk 3D Proto’s showroom, you can contact the company here or email [email protected]. Below, you can see a video tour of the showroom and a quick overview of the products the company offer. Discuss further in the Hawk 3D Proto forum over at 3DPB.com.
