Subject: [Leica] OT Blueprinting

I have always thought of 'blueprints' as technical drawings (produced by 
the diazo process) for mechanical (and other) projects, but am aware of the 
phrase 'blueprinting' an engine which seems (to me) to have be used along 
the same terms as 'gas-flowing', ie. creating a more aerodynamic 
environment for the fuel and exhaust routes.
Please could you explain exactly what 'blueprinting an engine' is and if 
you've any knowledge of how that phrase came to be used?
