Blueprints are objects that appears in Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal. They are set of technical drawing whose pieces are scattered around the levels in the game. Collecting a Blueprint and reassembling it will unlock permanent upgrades for the characters.
In general, Blueprints are blue sheets of paper with a unique white drawing on each of them. In the adventure levels though, they look like blue icons with a white gear on them.
There are total of eight Blueprints in Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, each split into six pieces (giving a total of forty-eight Blueprint pieces) which are hidden in the adventure levels. Each level holds all six pieces for a specific Blueprint, each of which can be collected by opening a spherical silver and red container with a Blueprint icon inside it. These containers break when touched and can be targeted with the Homing Attack. Collecting all six pieces in a level unlocks a Sonic Badge.
Collecting all six pieces of a Blueprint will unlock it in Tails' Workshop where they can be assembled on the Nintendo 3DS's touchscreen. Once assembled, the player unlocks an upgrade for the playable characters or a special feature to aid with the performance in gameplay, which the player can activate or disable from Tails' Workshop. The Upgrades are unlocked in a set order and must be completed in that order before one can unlock the next one.
