Chicago's newest retail experience is thoroughly modern and incredibly cutting-edge: It allows customers to create virtually anything in under an hour—and we're not just talking about walking in empty handed and emerging with a drawing or a photograph.
The 3D Printer Experience is, by all accounts, a futuristic find. Founded by Mike Moceri and Julie Friedman Steele, the company gives users the opportunity to make anything from an iPhone case to 360-degree image of one's own head.
For how innovative this concept is, it's also accesible and affordable: Smallest prints are only about 2 inches tall and cost just $25. They also offer several classes and workshops.
