It probably depends on how Factorio was installed. I've never used it, but Settings -> Other -> Delete achievements should work for all possibilities.

For a Steam install without mods, then I think achievements are stored via steam. I think the .exe installer uses achievement.dat inside %appdata%/Factorio. If you use the .zip package, then achievements are stored in the unpacked files in achievements.dat. So installing a new version via the .zip download is effectively another way of resetting achievements and your blueprints.

Achievements for modded games are also tracked separately from unmodded games.
