Laser cutting copper foil tape.

    I would like to cut some copper foil tape for use as a printed circuit board on PLA.
    The tape would be cut (with its backing on) across a board or other support to keep the tape spread out... the backing then removed and applied to a smooth PLA or other surface.
    I am told this can be done with a laser cutter.
    Has anyone tried this?
    What's the procedure for using unknown materials on the LC?
    Here's the tape I'd like to use:

    I don't know whether this would work. I do know that adhesive backing can foul the lens on the laser. This has been successfully done on the vinyl cutter.

    Thanks, I'll pursue it on the vinyl cutter then.
