The Plenum is a regular meeting of all people involved with the space to talk about things, and decide stuff.

If you have stuff to add, go right ahead! Please sign your points with your name (by adding a "--~~~~" after your text).

After the Plenum, please follow the tasks outlined in Cycling the Plenum to archive the discussion.


  • The Plenum is an institution to decide on what the space should look like, physically and in other ways, such as virtually.
  • Things concerning the space should be discussed at a plenum.
  • Everyone who's there can participate in that process, member or otherwise.
  • Everyone can head a plenum, no need for board members to do that.
  • Topics should ideally be announced on the Plenum wiki page beforehand
  • The Plenum should be held in a language that everyone participating understands.
  • Scheduling: second Thursday of the month at 8pm and last Sunday after the cleanup (which starts at 11am)
  • Plenums should be no longer than 90 minutes.

Next Plenum: Sunday, January 29th after the cleanup (which starts at 11am)

Projects & Groups update

Just a quick update from the group meeting at our space, or other long-term space projects

  • 3D Printer update: The reverse Bowden setup on the Sidewinder X2 is complete, the printer should now be avaliabe for general public use. --Spacezhang (talk) 14:20, 29 December 2022 (CET) 
    • Normal 3d printing intro is necessary, then contact 3d printing PoC to use the machine.
    • Terry's Prusa: Thank you for lending this printer to the space. Mostly works now! But:
    • Regulation for using the printer will follow, please do not use for now
    • Filament donation has been sorted in, they are for lab project use (e.g. Router lift, things we print on site etc), contact the PoC
  • By the way: I've got a scroll saw from Einhell Einhell tc-ss 405 e lying around, will this be useful and also fit inside the lab?

Stuff from the past

What was discussed at the last Plenum? What's the current status of those things? 20221208 Plenum

  • Heating issues: With the rising temperatures and our nice black insulating curtains the temperature has been OK mostly. On Monday there is an appointment from a heating repair company and they will look at the system.
  • The City Council also discussed the management of the Kreativquartier in the future and declined a draft because it contained no clause about participation of the tenants (like us). This is good for us! Thanks David.

Anything you don't feel comfortable with within the space? What would you like to change or to be changed?

  • Unfortunately, we figured out (the hard way) that we are very close to the fuse limit. Please refrain from charging your e-car at this time. During the winter month when the heater fans (etc etc.) are running, it is very easy to blow the fuse. This affects our neighbors, so defaulting to "be excellent" here. --ⓒ②② (🅃🄰🄻🄺) 16:47, 8 January 2023 (CET)
  • I propose that we have a general rule to not move the big gate during winter season for two reasons: The curtain might interfere with the gate and cause a problematic situation (e.g. curtain could get caught in the gate). Additionally, it is extremely hard to heat the room back up. For heavy things (e.g. when we had to get stuff done at DECO) it was easy to use the workshop gate (and the workshop acts as 'floodgate' keeping the cold out). For getting air inside, it is a good option to open the kitchen door. --ⓒ②② (🅃🄰🄻🄺) 16:47, 8 January 2023 (CET)
    • Approved! The door should be kept closed

DECO 2022 review

  • This was part of the Germany-wide decentralized congress
  • We had really cool three days, thank you to everyone who helped!
  • We worked together really well with muc.ccc.de and were able to make new contacts

Workshop announcement from our neighbors: "3D Print for Repair Workshop"

Kommende Woche Dienstag (17. Januar) wird bei uns (Werkbox, d.Red.) vor Ort ab 18:30 Uhr der „3D Print for Repair Workshop" stattfinden. Dafür werden extra zwei Dozenten von der Manchester Metropolitan University anreisen und uns erklären, wie wir 3D-Druck für Reparaturzwecke einsetzen können. Der Workshop wird durch Interreg (also die Europäische Union) finanziert und ist für uns kostenlos. Wir hoffen sehr auf rege Teilnahme gerade aus Reihen derer, die unser Repair-Café betreuen. Natürlich sind aber auch alle anderen Nutzer und Mitglieder sehr herzlich eingeladen. Der Workshop wird in Englischer Sprache stattfinden und richtet sich sowohl an absolute Anfänger wie auch an fortgeschrittene Anwender. Gerne können auch externe Personen an dem Workshop teilnehmen – leitet diese E-Mail also gern an Interessierte weiter. In jedem Fall bitten wir um eine ganz kurze Anmeldung per E-Mail an info@werkbox3.de, damit wir einen Überblick haben, wie viele Besucher wir erwarten dürfen.
