Idea/Overview: Plenum

Date/Time: February 6th 2019, 8 pm
Attending Managers: Mitja, Lukas
Attending Members: Julien, Tobi, Ignaz, Henrik, Luzian, Kim, Johannes, Erik, Jochen, WiNu
Attending Guests: Michael


Here's the list so far - please don't hesitate to add more! If you won't be able to attend, you can add your comments here or in the discussion to take part anyway :-)

Project Presentations

Let's take about 2 × 20 minutes before each plenum to show others whay we're working on! If you are interested in talking about your projects, please announce it here and/or via the Mailing List:

  • Julien talked about
    • a small 3D print of a Wandlüfter he could not get at a store
    • his solar oven currently being built - after a playful cardboard version, the next one will be "smart" and track the sun, for example
    • a plan for making wooden cups out of pumpkins using 3D printing (see his inspiration here)
  • Johannes showed a 5 × 5 × 5 RGB LED cube and was able to get feedback from the others about some hardware problems (not enough memory on the chip he used)
  • next time: Erik & his son could present something and Jochen might, other volunteers: please add yourself to the next "meeting minutes"!

Collaboration possibilities

Did everyone know about the plenum, e.g. from the mailing list? Several members have never confirmed their invitations, hopefully just accidentally...

=> Lukas will look at who's missing when there is time, but please just add yourself in the meantime ;-)

Do-something days

We explained the concept of the issue tracker and do-something days, Mitja will rather spontaneously announce a "cleaning & more" day in the next weeks

Current projects that are looking for collaborators

Project:Precious Plastic

  • WiNu brought newspapers with plastic-related information
  • she is also able to get several free tickets for the KPA Messe (March 19/20 in Ulm) and wants to go to the World Organic Forum and the KUTENO Messe (May 7-9) as well


closed issues since the last plenum
new issues since the last plenum


Creating a user page is a great way to get started and introduce yourself and your projects!

Area Patron Update

Area Patron Update Members Feedback
Electronics Bench Johannes re-organized the E-Bench storage, new small parts magazines hung up but still empty Thanks! We're curious to see how it will turn out
3D Printer Farm Luca any update? any feedback/thanks?

Who else would like to become an Area Patron (Eckpate)?

Seminar Ideas

If you have anything to teach, please don't be shy and develop a seminar ;-)

open discussion (general improvements, etc.)

What did I do since the last plenum?

Lukas: added some simple, but probably non-intuitive hand tools to the wiki (and the workshops):


What am I planning to do until the next plenum?

  • Kim is working on the new website via Github pages
    • idea: could also include a "blog" section where everyone could submit entries for publication
  • Jochen is developing a silica gel based solar heat storage system
    • he might get us a metal bender for that :-D

What went wrong?

  • some fine tweezers from the IFixIt Toolkit are badly bent
  • the small yellow side-cutters from the E-Bench is missing

What went well?

What should get done at the space (new issues)?

  • add/finish documentation for the welder.
  • more members should add themselves to the Members Wall
  • Lukas' 3D model of the space should be documented and further developed
  • bring waste wood to the recycling place - Sebastian offered his van (need to find volunteers & a suitable date)

Next Meeting

Third Friday in March (after Make Munich & school break): 2019-3-15, 20:00
