Print it directly on the PCB

as we all know laser printer works according to the principle of statistical-electricity because
of that you could not directly print top of metal. But it's wrong. Today I found out why?

See , you could modify your printer to directly print on Copper plates. Or just print on the flexible thin
copper sheet and later super-glue it to plastic sheet.


However, so copper is a conductor so how could it keep static charge even for a short time?
Well the laser beam does not directly put photons on paper, Instead it energize the photoconductor drum.
This drum even not a part of the printer itself. Instead it's a part of the toner.

Still not clear? See this video, you will understand it's architecture.



[anyway if you already know how laser printer works, please skip this post,there's nothing new for you here].

I would like a way for nextcloud itself to print directly to the printers, instead of via the client. That way, it would not matter what client was used to access next cloud tablet, laptop etc and printer drivers would not need to be installed in each client.
