A guide to setting up your first project in Deep space

Deep Space is a Project Intelligence Platform that integrates digital engineering, digital construction solutions, and data-driven insights to streamline your BIM (Building Information Modeling) projects within the AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) industry. Deep Space is all about making digital construction super easy. This comprehensive guide will walk you through setting up your first project with Deep Space, ensuring seamless onboarding and collaboration among your project teams or construction teams, helping you deliver projects more efficiently.

Sign Up for Deep Space

Begin by entering your details on the sign-up page. Here, you'll also see an option to input your project or building name.

Choose Your Payment Method

After pressing next, select your preferred payment method and enter your card details. You'll receive an email with confirmation details shortly after. Deep Space Explorer requires a license for each project, and the system will check your email domain to see if you already have a workspace for your company. If you do, a new project slot will be added to that workspace. If this is your first project, Deep Space will set up a new environment for your project and then notify you.

These are the basic prerequisites to get up and running:

  • You have purchased Deep Space
  • You received an email that your Workspace Manager has been set up
  • You have received your login details to Deep Space Alpha web app
