Who's up for re/upcycling in Munich, Germany?
I just discovered this page and would love to start something here in Munich.
Who lives in Munich and wants to start something??
We are building the machines in the Munich Maker Lab and there are a bunch of more people in Munich who want to get started 🙌
I think @severin was planning to organize a Precious Plastic Munich meetup during the Streetlife Festival in May – so we can all meet, exchange and join forces!
Hey @jacteh 👋
as @katharinaelleke mentioned we (@dmte, her and me) are currently in the process of building machines at the Munich Maker Lab, and there’s some pictures of that over here. The MuMaLab has a booth at Streetlife festival, which happens on the first weekend of May, where we’re planning to show some precious plastic stuff as well.
As for the Meetup, I’d love to do one during the week before that, which is also when I and hopefully some more people will do a lot more machine building in the Lab. I should probably get that meetup set in the next few days 🙈
Everything sounds great. I already added myself to the map 🙂
It would be super cool to get something started here!
How’s May 1st for everyone? Thinking we could meet up at Munich Maker Lab and talk about stuff, throw some stuff on the bbq, that sort of thing 🙂
Hey guys I didn’t see the conversation yet soorryyyy !!!
Every week end I tell myself to send you a message to meet you hahaha
the 1st May I’m not here but I’m here this week end or the week end of the 5 and 6 May. Or during the week for an evening … We could organize an after work to the lab ?
So crazy @severin what you did !! I would love to join and help you to build the machine 🙂
Thanks for adding me to the conversation. May 1st is fine for me.
if i can i`ll come around
Cool. So I was thinking something like 5pm on May 1st, at the Munich Maker Lab, Dachauer Str. 112f, 80636 München. It’s a few minutes by Tram (20,21) from the main station (Exit at Leonrodplatz), if you’re from a bit farther out.
We could take a look at the state of our machines, talk about what everyone’s ideas are, and what we can achieve together. We can also make some sort of a plan for Street Life Festival on the weekend after, very much encouraging everyone to join us at the booth there. Then of course we can always fire up the barbecue, so feel free to bring some stuff for that as well.
Looking forward to meeting all of you 🙂
I am sorry, I didn’t see this update. There doesn’t seem to be a notification system here. I could still make it, if it’s still happening. Anyone going?
Unfortunately I can’t make it. :/ Another project of mine came in the way. Please let me know where to find you at Streetlife Festival.
Was not possible for us… Didn’t see that BBQ was also planned. 😐 Any pictures?
Pictures of the shredder ?
I will die… Saturday we cannot come. Some sport obligation. 🏉 And we don’t live in the München area … We are near Donauwörth. 🚁
We will meet a next time surely and hope to see a lot of videos and pictures of your exhibition with the visitors…
Tuesday was a bit on the small side, but we discussed some stuff about what we could do moving forward.
The shredder is coming along, and we’ll put on some finishing touches tomorrow right before loading it into the truck for StreetLife festival. You’ll find us close to the corner of Theresienstraße, look for a red van with a dark blue tent out front. @dmte will probably be there both days, and I’m looking to be there all day on sunday as well. We might also bring our oven and do some compression tests, if we find some nice molds to work with.
Expect some pictures on instagram at https://www.instagram.com/preciousplasticmunich/
Looking forward to meeting some of you over the weekend
Hi guys how are you ? I’m wondering if you are planning to go to the lab shortly because I would like to meet you and join the movement !! 🙂
Let me know what are your plans how I can help you
from the calendar of the MunichMakerLab I cant tell when you guys will be there again. But I would like to come around and see what you’re doing. Is there any set date yet?
Sorry for the lack of updates. We’ll be at the MuMaLab this Thursday evening, and possibly Friday afternoon. Then I’ll be gone for a week, but usually we (as in @dmte or me) be there every Thursday. We’ll try to figure out a date for another proper meetup soonish 🙂
Looking forward to meeting more of you.
Hey guys, I plan to come tomorrow to meet you and see how far you are and how can I help you 🙂
See you tomorrow
Hey everyone! It’s been a while, so time for an update, huh?
Next Streetlife festival is coming up in a week, and those seem to be some sort of accelerator for the stuff we do, weirdly enough. So again, we’ll have a booth there, we’ll bring the shredder, which hopefully works a whole lot better than last time. We’ll also bring a big amount of plastic to shred, some stickers, and maaaaybe even our injection machine. It’s been in the works for ever, now we’re just left with putting it together, painting it, and making a few molds to test it out. Super exciting, and I hope I can finish it on time.
Anyway, long story short, I hope we’ll meet a few of you there, and maybe use that as a start for more regular meetings. We’ll be across the street from the Staatsbibliothek, I’ll be there Saturday and Sunday, and @dmte will join on Sunday.
Thanks a lot for your message… Came back Thursday… Mother in law came Saturday… Hard to find time.
How was the festival??
Hey guys I was in the US for a road trip, just came back yesterday.
Let me know if an other meeting is coming soon ! still have energy to come and help you !!! 🙂
my name is Michael and I´m from Austria. But I run an office in Tittling near Passau, which means that I´m in Germany every week. If there are new meetings where I can join, please tag me and I try to come as fast as possible to learn more about the machine and how to recycle plastic.
wanted to give you all a quick update. @dmte and I’ve been busy with lots of other things recently, but we’ve been collecting plastic all along, and shredding some of it now and then when we get around to it. We’ve had some more problems with our shredder, it’s really kind of a pain at this point, but we try to keep it running as best as we can.
We have some plans for next year. First thing will be having regular meetings, current plan is like one per month, to keep things rolling a bit smoother. I’ve just opened up a meetup group to organize those meetings -> https://www.meetup.com/de-DE/Precious-Plastic-Munich , maybe we can have the first meeting already in the first week of January. What do you think?
Second, we’ll have a booth at Make Munich, the first weekend of March. The current plan is to take the shredder and the injection molding machine, and show off some things. Anyone interested in joining us?
Third, we’re looking for a dedicated space. Currently we’re located at the Munich Maker Lab, which is cool, but if we were to find something we could make into a special Precious Plastic haven, that would be extra sweet. So if you have any idea where we could do that, let us now.
Before we enter the new year, the Munich Maker Lab is having a small Christmas party tomorrow, Thursday, Dec 20th, at their space, and we’ll be there too. If you have time to pass by, we’d love to show you some of the stuff that we’ve been making, collecting, etc.
Thank you for the news ! I was wondering yesterday what was going on ^^
On my side I will be back in France until the 5th of January so I will not be able for tomorrow and the meeting of the first wek of January.
However I’m in for giving a hand for the make Munich event and I find the idea of meetup super cool ! With more regular meeting I think we should be able to unlock the pain point 😉
I’m really looking foward to see how I can help you guys in this cool project.
See you soon and have great time for the rest of the year 🙂
Hi, Prima !
Too late for me for tomorrow and I will be also in France until 6/7th of Jan… But I would like to participate, I promise I will try harder 😜
For the make Munich… I want to participate, no I will, I could bring my small oven, my buggel and my silicon molds… What do you thing?
Who is OK for a whatsapps group? Private message to share the tel number😉 I will do the group.
Have a good Newton’s birthday Fest… Good holidays and rest.
