Arri-S Matte Box Filter Trays?

Lev Kalman

Recommended Posts


I work at a teaching facility where we have six Arri-S kits with matte boxes. We've been able to maintain all the equipment for a very long time, but one thing we're running out of and can't seem to find are the trays that hold the 2 x 2" filters. We're down to one per matte box, instead of the two they can hold.

Does anyone know where I can obtain more? Or is there a relatively sturdy DIY replacement? Could a holder be 3-D printed?

Thanks for any advice!

Hi Lev,

if you could send me pictures and dimensions of the filter tray, I could model it in CAD and have it either 3d printed in sintered nylon, dyed black, or machined in aluminum, anodized black

dimensions ideally in mm, accuracy if possible down to 0.05mm (caliper)


Best regards
