Get the Best Solutions with a Customized 3D Printer

Open platform 3D printers are taking the industry by storm, with sizable advantages and advances in materials for industrial 3D printing. 3D isn’t just for prototypes anymore. The technology has moved well beyond prototyping and is a viable manufacturing process for production runs of up to 250,000 parts per year.

With M. Holland, we’ll work on finding the best possible solution for your 3D Printing needs. We are not aligned with any specific printing manufacturer, so you’re guaranteed to find the best solution at the most competitive price.

Need to print large parts(above 12in x 12in)? Custom 3D printers may be right for you. Work with M. Holland on designing a customized 3D printer to print the perfect materials for your exact applications.

Closed platform printers allow you to print only with their approved materials. With open platform, you can print just about any material from any manufacturer, creating thousands of options.

M. Holland’s unique value proposition is our unbiased 3D printer selection service. We don't advise you to talk to a printer reseller about which 3D Printer to buy.

Top Reasons to Print with a Customized 3D Printer

Custom Dimensions

You need larger formats (larger than 12 x 12") and/or custom dimensions.


Commercially available printers are expensive and have limitations.

Custom Materials

You are printing with materials outside of PLA (PP, HDPE, PA).

Unique Requirements

You have unique requirements (i.e., flexible materials, 3 nozzle heads, etc.).

Factors to Consider When Customizing a 3D Printer

Maintenance, training and finish of product are all factors to consider. How much maintenance is required for the machine, and who will do it? How will we train our team? And what is the finish of the final product, and what materials do we need to print to achieve it? M. Holland can consult on all of these decisions.

Maintenance: Why wait for a technician? Service machines on-site and internally, or utilize a service technician of your choosing.

Training: Design trainings made for you with M. Holland's training and certification program.

Why Customize an FDM Printer?


Custom formats, costs, material selection and other unique requirements are all valid reasons to customize.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is a method of 3D printing known for its speed, accuracy, and competitive cost. FDM is also known for the biggest variety of colors and largest selection of production-grade thermoplastics for 3D printing.

An FDM machine precisely extrudes melted plastic filament to create a part. FDM parts can be made quickly, usually in just one day. FDM materials tend to be general purpose ABS/ASA and high performing polycarbonates are an option.
