The novel SCA process is similar to binder jetting in the manufacturing process. A layer of ECONIT powder is applied in the building chamber via a roller. An activator is sprayed onto the powder from a bar with fine nozzles, which binds the material along the object cross-section. Then the next powder layer is applied and the process is repeated. The thickness of the layer is 2 mm. After completion of the construction process, all the material must rest for 24 hours to harden. The ECONIT base material can bind a wide variety of aggregates, even in large quantities, and gains different material properties from each material admixture.

ECONIT is a new material developed specifically for the additive manufacturing of prefabricated parts for the construction industry. It is a construction material similar to cement with excellent functional and mechanical properties. ECONIT is sustainable, high resolution and extremely versatile, as it can bind a very large amount of natural aggregates (ground sand, wood, recycled glass, etc.).
