@jameshjacksonjr:librem.onejameshjacksonjrDogwood is coming soon16:22:38
@jameshjacksonjr:librem.onejameshjacksonjrSo enough batches are out that need cases16:22:56
@amgine:matrix.orgAmgine_But, perhaps, not in the hands of people who are printing/designing cases just yet. 16:24:02
@angus.ainslie:talk.puri.smAngusI could post some rough dimensions but no models yet 16:24:42
@amgine:matrix.orgAmgine_I'm trying to remember if anyone has close dimensions. It has been a while since the active discussions; maybe check out the wikifab, github links?16:26:54
@angus.ainslie:talk.puri.smAngusIf there are some there then the outside dimensions haven't changed since chestnut but switches, camera, headphone plug and most other openings have.16:31:36

@dean:librem.onedean Have people identified points to attach power and data to?
I know the PinePhone has dedicated connections, but not the Librem 5.

@normandeschamps:librem.oneRogueNorm2Well, I will add a little bit of noise to liven things up. Here is some images of the prototype version of my FrankenFive: a touchscreen that becomes a tablet when the L5 gets docked to it.23:39:42
@normandeschamps:librem.oneRogueNorm2It uses a 20-pin magnetic usb-c connector on the phone that mates to an embedded half built into the bottom of the cradle on the right side of the back of a MageDok 11.6" touchscreen. A 25000 mah power pack is attached to the left. The cradle and powerpack holder were custom designs I printed to hold these specific pieces.23:41:36

@normandeschamps:librem.oneRogueNorm2A quick video showing how it works with my Samsung S8. basically you just have to turn on the screen and slide the phone in and it is a tablet! I assume it will work exactly the same with the L5; I will just have to make a different sized cradle.23:43:10
@normandeschamps:librem.oneRogueNorm2Next up is getting some ribbon USB-C cables used for drones so they don't stick out on the side and are the correct length, and improving the two back pieces so they are more ergonomic and look a little nicer. :-)23:44:57
@dean:librem.onedeanCool, you can even use the camera on the phone. Does the screen communicate with the phone or is there a board connecting the two?23:46:57

@custard:librem.onecustardOk, that I’d like :)00:06:50
@normandeschamps:librem.oneRogueNorm2Yeah, I deliberately designed the cradle to keep the camera(s) accessible. For communication, it is essentially just a USB-C connection, so the larger screen is fully touch capable and all inputs from the screen are through that connection. So the only limitation is what the software will do with it. For my S8 I am limited by what I can do by Samsung Dex. It does allow the onscreen keyboard to pop up on the tablet screen and it is usable.00:21:51
