      I landed a job last week, fresh out of college with no experience. My title is a Mechanical Design Engineer. Currently I am creating drawings with PTC parametric 3.0. I'm struggling because
      1. I'm not familiar with the software and
      2. I'm not familiar with technical drawing standards. The standards we use are ASME Y14.5-1994.

      What I would like to improve:
      1. operating PTC parametric 3.0
      2. making drawings.

      YOUR SUGGESTIONS:
      Please suggest anything related on:
      1. Drawing with PTC parametric 3.0


      Thank you.

    3. mbuller I would suggest spending some time on youtube and search for 'creo 3.0 drawing tutorial' .... there are several video tutorials to get you started. Even if you are fresh out of uni/college, technical drawings are probably the easiest thing you can ever do. As far as standard is concerned, unfortunately I haven't worked with it and you may have to dig on Google what the standard is.

      ASME Y14.5-1994 search on Youtube gives this video tutorial:

      Good luck!

      If there are specific training needs then your employer should be sending you on training courses with PTC. Discuss this with your line manager.

      In addition to this, PTC have a wealth of online resources here: http://www.ptc.com/services/training/elearning
