4×5 Film Drying Rack


SKU: 45DR Category:


There are multiple sizes available – a 4-sheet, 5-sheet, 6-sheet, 8-sheet and 10-sheet. You need to specify which size you would like.

My take on a 4×5 sheet film drying rack. I don’t really care for using the clips to hang the sheets to dry, so I decided to see about designing a slotted rack for the film to dry instead, and this is the result.

I have tested this with a number of films (so far Ektar 100, Portra 160, Rollei IR 400, T-Max 100, HP5, FP4, Fomapan 200, Adox CHS 100 ii) and it works well in all of them. However be mindful of films known to exhibit extreme bending when drying. I had one report of expired film having issues with staying in the rack. If in doubt, test it with fewer sheets first.

The rack will arrive in parts – a top, a bottom, and two sides. It can either be assembled and taken apart as needed or it can be glued together (using CA/Super glue). I find it is much better glued so that is my recommendation, but if you’re tight on space, it packs down nicely.

This is designed and printed by me using my Prusa MK3s printers with Atomic Filament Deep Black PETG.
