This month, the Chicago Web Pros. are invited to join C3—the Chicago Creative Coalition—to get a firsthand look at what is being called our generation's industrial revolution and "The Maker Movement." This new technology bridges the gap between the digital and physical world in 3 dimensions, and attendees will receive an introduction to the innovative ways objects are conceived, designed and produced.
