Funny that I spend lot of time trying to deduce their "blueprints". I suspect most were far simpler than we imagine and were contained more within language than drawing. Many complex things can result from a few simple rules that govern their construction. Even the pyramid itself is simply a four sided structure that comes to a point.
Ancient people didn't think or communicate like we do so this completely changes how each individual on the pyramid operated. If you simply assume the architect didn't care how these stones were emplaced but merely cared that the resultant had some specific property then drawing this all out in advance simply wasn't necessary. It was easier for the masons who could actually see the shapes they were working with to cut them to follow the rules laid down in language. When I see what looks like scientific depictions from ancient Egypt there is actually quite a bit of room for interpretation and, obviously, there is no room for interpretation in building a pyramid. Hence I believe that workers saw these scientific depictions and received verbal instruction in them. If a worker still didn't comprehend then a vulgar depiction (blueprint) was made for the specific aspect he didn't comprehend. For the main part if anyone needed what we'd call a proper blueprint then he was carving stone out of the quarry and was considered incapable of following direction. There was no mindless work, no grunt work, on the pyramid. Each man had to understand his place and function and how it tied in to the overall job. There was some repetitive hard work but very little and I would assume men cycled through this work rather than having the same individual doing the same task day in and day out.
The concept that people slaved away to build these and lift the stones is in our imagination and there is no evidence whatsoever it existed in reality. People (men, women, and children) wanted to come here to work and there were a very limited number of jobs for them.
