The paper is thin, smooth material produced by compacting the fibres. The fibres are usually natural and cellulose-based. The most common material is a pulp made of wood (usually spruce)

Evolution in print.

I think it’s 3D printing.

Why? Because 3D printing is the process of creating three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The object is formed by placing layers of material.

We can actually create what we want and then even to touch. It’s crazy but cool thing in the world press.
