this is a 3d-printable case designed for the PinePhone, but implemented with an eye towards generalizing beyond just that model and supporting future phones/preferences alongside this first model.
as an example, the default case (pictured below) includes a pouch for carrying an external battery, but if you don't want the pouch then you can build with
the battery pouch is the defining feature of this case though. it's a quick solution to achieve all-day battery life without any special requirements from the OS, and it requires no supports to print: it's a simple mesh which prints flat with the rest of the case, but deforms to fit the battery upon installation.
for an interactive viewer, see build/web-viewer/index.html. you'll need a browser which supports webGL (e.g. chromium).

CASE_RENDER_PHONE=1=> render not just the case, but also what it would look like with the phone inside
CASE_RENDER_PHONE_ONLY=1=> render ONLY the phone, no case
CASE_BATTERY=<name>=> design the case to fit a specific battery model, or "none"
