Form1(+) heated chamber

Since my form1 got refurbished to form1+ ish one, (it is recognized as form1+ when connected to a computer) things got busy and I did not have time to test print it. 

Today, after months of working on other projects I finally have a chance to print something with it. 

It gets rather cold in Seoul and my studio doesn’t have the best heating(if not at all). Form 2 has heated resin tank to keep the resin viscosity consistent. In cold weather resin gets thicker and doesn’t level quick enough after peeling process. 
I briefly cleaned up the machine and added an old RepRap heater I had lying around, inside the orange chamber. Now the resin in the tank is warm and less viscous which hopefully, should improve print quality. 
I used W1209 temperature controller I got from China long time ago and it seems to work pretty well so far.
