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: Sunday, March 31st after the cleanup which starts at 11 am

Say Thank you

  • Bira and Alex for cleaning the space and de_dusting all the boxes in the workshop


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.

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

Precious Plastic Injection Machine

I'd like to bring our Precious Plastic injection molding machine to the space for a few weeks to try to recylce some HDPE. The machine needs about 1 m^2 of flour space, do we have some space to spare for that? --Tiefpunkt (talk) 22:40, 26 March 2024 (CET)

  • It seems not easy to find a place, we tried to find something and ran around the space with two 1m rulers to get an impression. Some questions are still left open:
    • Will it stink? Likely the best place is in the workshop anyway
    • Does it need 3-Phase Power?
    • As it is a pretty big, there should be an effort to keep the timeframe as short and clear as possible. Would two weeks be okay?
  • The only kind-of possible spot that we found would be in the workshop where the yellow kärcher yard sweeper currently stands as we could fold that one up and put the two boxes of wood scraps somewhere else.
  • If these questions can be solved and there are no other objections, our idea is to approve it next plenum which is relatively soon.
