Fix Techtonica: Are you building an item mall?

Techtonica is a first-person factory automation game set beneath the surface of an alien planet. Work alone or in co-op to build factories, gather resources, research new technologies, mold the destructible terrain, establish a base of operations, and uncover long-forgotten secrets.

The Challenge of Building an Item Mall

Are you making a mall in this game? That is to say, automating the production of production buildings? Assemblers making assemblers, miners, smelters, inserters, accumulators, etc.
I’ve got all basic items automated like iron gears and copper frames all the way up to blue cores currently…but the thought of trying to automate production of all non-intermediate items got me turning away. Too much space and belt routing needed.
With the crafting speed upgrades research and just carrying around a full stack of intermediate items, I don’t really think it’s worth it. Then again, while I have blue core automated, I am still pretty early on in the game…things could change.
