Diagram for 3-way and 4-way switching can be seen on following link.
3-way diagram applies to switches only (and not to 3-way timers or dimmers, which may add specific variations to wiring).

Notice that the dark screw is key to wiring 3-way circuit.
Each 3-way switch has 1 dark screw (the common screw) and 2 brass screws (travelers) ... and a green ground screw.

Load between 3 way switches and line entering switch box. Breaker trips when both switches in down position

Test your wires.
Somehow you've got a neutral wire, or ground wire, or shorted wire connected to one of the switches.
Without a wiring diagram, best place to start is identify hot wire from breaker.
There should be only 1 hot wire connected to the switches.
Disconnect the hot wire. Then test hot wire to each other wire and screw terminal. Tester will light up on neutral or ground fault. That will narrow down the suspects.

Open following link for example 3-way wiring diagram:
