I did this on the first level (denoted by 01, not the tutorial) on normal by playing on the fully loaded setting. By the end of the level, if you have protected all the cores (as cores seem to affect your wave bonus) you will have enough to build 1 of each tower and fully upgrade them with a little to spare.
I would recommend just doing this in conjunction with

Defense Grid 2Full HouseThe Full House achievement in Defense Grid 2 worth 21 pointsBuild and fully upgrade each tower type in one mission.

I blocked the top left and bottom right road with a cannon, and put a cannon in the middle. I upgraded them until they could hold off the aliens then just built and upgraded one of each type of tower at a time. I didn't need more than these 3 cannons but you mileage may vary. You can always sell them to build the other towers if needed.
I don't know if you need boost, but I do know you don't need to use boost upgrades (I.E the damage booster, score booster, or disruption field you can use to upgrade towers on the boost.)
So I just built one boost tower but didn't put anything on top of it.
With my 3 cannons, I was a little bit short of upgrading my last tower, so I had to sell one to afford it.
This is possible on easy (IE you are capable of doing it on easy assuming achievements actually unlock on easy.)

As with all other achievements in this game, the achievement won't unlock until you beat the level.
