At the last 2600 meeting they demonstrated "check washing", one of the easiest forms of check fraud to perform.  Though the technique may be decades old and well known, we discussed how the digital age makes it a much bigger threat than ever before and what you can do to protect yourself from it.

Last night Arch Reactor hosted a 3D Printer Build Night as part of the St. Louis 3D Printer Meetup Group with at least 35 attendees.  The printer for the evening was a donated PrintrBot kit from one of Arch Reactor's members.  Since the total assembly time would end up being 12+ hours, Ryan and Scott pre-assembled some of the more minor assemblies to help speed up the process and get to the more interesting parts.  In addition to the kit building, there were several other printers running which varied from an UltiMaker, a couple different delta printers, and modified Lyman filament extruder.

About Our Hackerspace

Arch Reactor was founded in 2009 by a group of friends who liked technology, programming, making, and pizza. Now St. Louis' largest hackerspace, Arch Reactor's growing membership continues to bring new skills, projects, equipment, and people to one place.

For a deeper understanding of what we're about, you should check out our explanation of hackerspaces, perhaps read about one of our members' projects, or (best of all) come meet us in person at the next open event!
