The Plenum is a regular meeting of all people involved with the space to talk about things and decide stuff. If you have any topics 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 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 on-site can participate in that process, member or otherwise.
  • Everyone can lead 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 8 pm and the last Sunday after the cleanup (which starts at 11 am)
  • Plenums should be no longer than 90 minutes.

Next Plenum: Thursday, Oct 12 at 8pm

Topics for the Plenum

What are you currently working on?

  • Milian: Auto und Adapter um Bosch Grün Akkus als Powerbank zu benutzen
  • Robert (Lötbert): Neue Wohnung
  • Johannes & Madeleine: Prototyp für Balkonmöbel
  • Robert: Lego Powerup
  • Aaron: Eine abgerundete Kante in ein zukünftigen Schrank fräsen mit der neuen Oberfräse aber traut sich noch nicht so ganz

Projects & Groups update

This is a quick update from group meetings at our space or other long-term space projects (e.g., Lasercutter, CNC, etc.)

  • Door Lock: The Door opener has bin acting up again every day the last three days. The error pattern is that it says "Its Open" but the garage door does not open. You can try messaging me (Aaron) in slack if you are locked out, I am often not far away. We could try fixing this, or get the actual door lock in the entrance working instead (the latter being our original plan). Over the next days I will ask around stakeholders™ and see if I can collect and improve existing documentation so it becomes clearer what we could do. There is quite a good documentation already: Wiki article Doorlock. The github repos with the code are also linked there.

Say Thank you

Everyone doing small stuff (or larger stuff) to keep the space clean and in order.


If you want to be mentioned at the previous section as well, one of the easiest ways is to take one of our MiniJobs. This is a great way to participate in the Munich Maker Lab e.V. and contributing time helps keeping our space in a good shape. You can find all information about the scope of the available jobs on MiniJobs.

Things to Buy

  • Pre-Approval of two textured print beds for our Prusa Minis to be able to print PETG (roughly 80€ for two plates). There might be some caveat associated with it, so I (Aaron) will ask the 3D crew for their opinion. If they have nothing against it, I will buy them, otherwise put it again on the next plenum. --Aaron (talk)
    • Approved unanimously

Request for online participation

If necessary, you can request to participate remotely (via jitsi). Please briefly describe why you want to participate remotely and what topic you want to discuss. (additionally to adding the topic on top!)
