Blueprints are a new addition to BuildCraft 3.1. Blueprints can be used to store information about structures, similar to a template, but instead of only storing what spaces are occupied, a blueprint will also store the material that was used. This allows you to better recreate an existing structure using a builder.

When first crafted, blueprints are referred to as 'Blank Blueprint.' Blank blueprints need to be written by using an Architect Table, or Blueprint Library.

A blueprint can be written on multiple times, each time it overwrites the previous information that was stored on the blueprint.
