    how hard would it be to become a plumber when you've always been a carpenter? Seriously, the question is going to generate a lot of opinion, none of which makes any difference because no one (but you) knows your intelligence, your capabilities, your background, etc. Such a simple question but such a tough answer.

      Well....I went from Structural....to Aeronautical...to Civil to Architectural...

      Although I recently attempted to go an MEP firm...never got a phone call...maybe advanced knowledge of Revit wasn't enough....

        Pipe fittings are pipe fittings - what matters is their arrangement. However, duct is an animal that is not easily understood. The arrangement and order is of course critical, but understanding the nuances of good constructible duct systems is not easily learned. Knowing what fittings are generally produced, which ones are generally not produced (even though your software lets you draw it), and best practices in fitting design are all very important areas to consider when jumping into the sheet metal side of things.

        Sadly no ones really understands duct unless you've fabricated and installed it yourself.

          The software side of things will probably be easy to pick up. The bigger struggles will come from code compliance and calculations.

            This the problem I am having everyone wants someone with mep experience and it seems to be a make or break issue revit knowledge alone is not enough
