Dyson Sphere Program | How To Get Your Automation Started

We are back again with a basic automation guide for Dyson Sphere Program players. You will need to follow a few simple steps written in this guide, to get your automation started in the game. Read through the full guide to know more. Let’s jump right in!

How To Get Your Automation Started In Dyson Sphere Program

To get your automation started you will need to follow a few simple steps:

  • Get Power
  • Harvest Iron and Copper
  • Refine Ores

You will also need to grab some important Tech ASAP:

  • Basic Logistic Systems (topmost Tech)
  • Automatic Metallurgy (Second tech from top)
  • Basic Assembling processes (4th tech down)

You can research these materials in any order in your inventory.

Now let us take a look at each of the above-mentioned steps one by one.


Number 1 thing in your to-get list should be power. Without power, you won’t be able to run your base. Your first source of energy is Wind Power. Completing the in-game tutorial will give you one Wind Turbine but you will need a lot of them as quickly as possible. The output of these turbines is very low but there is no cause to worry. Buildings can run with low power but with reduced effectiveness. Depending upon the “Wind- Energy Ratio”, Wind Turbines may function less effectively on some planets. Be sure to place your Wind Turbine near your miner(s) so you won’t need a Tesla Tower (power line) to move the power too far.

Eventually you will need Tesla Towers to move power over distances. Unlike Wind Turbines these can be placed anywhere. They  have a larger supply area and connection length making them ideal for powering your factory.

Harvesting Resources

In order to automate Iron or Copper, you will need to place a Mining Machine facing a few nodes of the required material and add power to run it. You can set up your miners in any way you like. But generally, we recommend that you try to make them cover as many nodes as possible so that you won’t have to deal with their cleanup as the nodes run dry. A node can be used by multiple Miners to overlap their zones. However, this will use up the nodes faster. You can position the Mining Machines exactly how you want to by using Shift to unlock their grid and rotation snapping.

Once your Miner is in place and properly powered, you can click on it with a conveyor to build its output. No sorter can be used while trying to get the output from the machine.


Once your ores are being mined, you can convert them into Ingots or Magnets in a Smelter by using a Sorter (both for in and out).
