Vent fan, chiller, and air compressor can be controlled with the laser control buttons on the bench next to the laser cutter.
RetinaEngrave (control software) runs on a VM which you can access from the Raspberry Pi terminal hanging on the wall. Click the menu in the upper left, then "VMs", then "Retina Engrave".
Alternately, you can download and install it on your Windows laptop.
Power on the laser by twisting the Emergency Stop button clockwise a little bit, so it springs up. Wait for the controller to boot. RetinaEngrave should detect it. If not, try restarting RetinaEngrave, or use the "specify IP address for connection" and type in the number (10.13.0.41) displayed on the laser's control panel.
Operation from this point should proceed according to the manual.
