I DID IT! I built a framework tablet!

Thanks to @whatthefilament and his framework tablet project + instructions, I was able to make a framework tablet using my 11th gen mainboard! :smiley:

…and also a 350mm Voron 2.4 (but I digress).

Anyway, here are some pictures!

My tablet in its current state isn’t the best: the plastic isn’t flat, there is a bit of flex and gaps here and there. The power button lever requires a lot of force to toggle. The issues can all be fixed with a better tuned printer, but I’ll need to spare some time to get around to improve my Voron.

The parts that I struggled with in my build experience was (1) getting a speaker kit (as it is not in stock in US warehouses), and (2) getting the audio board secured in place of the back case. Since I wasn’t able to get a speaker kit, I skipped the that in the build process. As for the audio board, the mounting holes were just slightly smaller than the M3 screw, thus needed “a bit of force” to thread the screw through.

On the other hand, building the tablet was a fun experience! The build process for the tablet was simple and easy to follow. The colored circles and images definitely helped with the build process. “It’s like building a lego!”:tm:

Now I should go sleep.

Great, congratulations!
I wonder, did you manage to implement the missing touchscreen function (which many hope for)?

The screen is a USB-C touch monitor sourced from Amazon! it is not the original screen. However the display port connection on the mainboard supports touch input.
