The CNC is moving along nicely. The cover has a window now, and it makes really nice round things. So excited for all the great stuff we can make with it now 🤩

It feels like space in the space has doubled. We finally finished removing the metal railing of the inspection pit in the front section of the space, and covering it up with a big load of OSB. And now, we can actually use that part of our lab 😍 big big thank you for everyone who helped to make this happen 👏

Our CNC mill is finally milling stuff 🥳 It’s been a long time in the making, but here we are, finally using one of our biggest machines that has been with us for quite a while now to make things. Still a bit of optimizing to do, but that’s just small stuff now 😉

Did we mention we’re open again? Unfortunately, not to everyone quite yet, but at least our members can come back in and make stuff. We have to take some precautions of cause, and everyone has to check-in and out for their stays, which we built this nice little terminal for. But it’s just so good to be back 🥳

Green lights 🥳

The team has been hard at work to get our lasercutter back up and running. New exhaust piping, and some rework of the electronics were among the needed fixes. Now it’s almost back at cutting again but we still have some fixes up our sleeves to make it even better

Chris is also printing face shields for the MakerVsVirus, as well some other helpers like these door handle addons to not have to touch the handle with your hand to open it.

The lab’s still closed, but that doesn’t stop us from making. There’s a great group of makers all across the country trying to help where they can make the current situation more bearable. They’re called MakerVsVirus, and make face shields and other protective gear that’s desperately needed right now. Some of our members support the local Hub here in Munich, like Joe who’s been printing holders for face shields and sewing making textile masks using some really clever 3D-printed helpers.

Munich Maker Lab is closed due to COVID-19

Dear members, friends and visitors of the Munich Maker Lab, sadly, we have to give you an update sooner than we hoped.

Today, the Bavarian state government declared the state of emergency due to the corona pandemic. This will take effect on Tuesday, 17th March until 20th April 2020 and forbids the further normal operation of our space.

This means, the temporary closure of the lab for everyone, including members.

If you have belongings in the lab that you’ll need within the next few weeks, you can still enter the lab. The access system will stay active. But only get your stuff, and don’t stay there for work or leisure. 

We’ll keep you updated on possible changes regarding the situation. In case of further questions, please contact us at vorstand@munichmakerlab.de.Thank you for your understanding, and stay healthy

Dear members, friends and visitors of the Munich Maker Lab,  

due to the current, very dynamic situation regarding the spread of the novel corona virus (SARS-CoV-2) we will follow the advice of the federal government and the RKI, to slow down the transmission.Therefore, we will take measures, which will come with some restrictions for the operation of our space.

This means, in addition to the temporary closure of the lab for non-members that

  • meetups, workshops and similar events,
  • our opening party & our participation at the international hackerspaces open day 2020,
  • internal meetings (plenum, cleanup, cnc-evening),
  • open evening on thursday,

won’t take place.

This also means that the scheduling of the upcoming general assembly is postponed as the situation is very dynamic and we don’t know when this will change. You will receive a separate message for the scheduling of the assembly, once the situation is more predictable.

For now, the workshop will stay open for members. However, please refrain from meeting in groups.

Please stay at home if you:

For the moment this holds until 20th April 2020. We will monitor the situation and keep you updated on possible changes to this time frame. Sign up to the discuss mailing list to receive updates.

We kindly ask for your understanding, hope you stay healthy and nevertheless manage to finish some great projects in the meantime.

In case of further questions, please contact us at vorstand@munichmakerlab.de.

Keep it awesome,
Cecile, Nico & David
