Overview of Ron Hollis

Since exiting Quickparts, I have invested my time HELPING PEOPLE be SUCCESSFUL.


I help people succeed by providing clarity for their PURPOSE and definition to their PROCESS.


My primary rule is that you must be willing to help yourself MORE than you expect me to

help you. I find this to be an excellent filter to allow me to focus my time on the best since it eliminates most candidates.

I am an experienced entrepreneur that has focused my career on product development technologies, including CAD, 3D printing/rapid prototyping/additive manufacturing and business execution. From learning about big program management with the International Space Station, to emerging technologies from infancy with 3D Printing, I have been able to identify large opportunities in new markets for growth and profitability.


I am blessed to have lived the American dream and able to spend my time and efforts helping others pursue their goals and dreams. While many want to be successful, they seem to spend their time searching for the secret instead of working toward their dreams.  Unfortunately, I did not find a secret to success, but did a lot of hard work, dedication and discipline.


The following are areas that I consider myself experienced and able to have an intelligent conversation about:

Manufacturing Technologies

Rapid Prototyping

3D Printing


Fused Deposition Modeling

Laser Sintering

Multi-Jet Modeling


3D Systems




Design Technologies

Computer Aided Design (CAD) for New Product Development


Parametric Technologies (PTC)


Reverse Engineering

Laser Scanning



Business Systems

 Building a Great Team


Metrics and Measurements

Candid Communication

Strategic Planning System for execution

The followng "rules" have been instrumental in shaping my life and leadership skills.


Welch's Rules (the rules I use to guide my life)

Face reality as it is, not as it was or how you wish it were

Be candid with everyone

Control your own destiny or someone else will

Change before you have to

Lead, don't manage

If you don't have a competitive advantage, don't compete
