Digitally signed app
Do you have Autodesk® Revit® families with horrible preview images? This app is for you!

- Batch process new preview images for thousands of families at a time!
- Upgrade files from previous versions of Revit in the process.
- Optional to export high resolution images for indexing on popular content management systems such as Avail and CTC.
- Enable gradient backgrounds.
- Enable Preview Visibility mode - ensuring that the image looks just like it will in your projects.
- Customize view scales by category so line weights show accurately.
- Smooth lines with anti-aliasing.
- Hide certain subcategories

**If you would like P.I.G. to silently run on every workstation at your firm, virtually eliminating the future need to monitor or batch through files, a site license is available. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Note: This app uses a custom installer (and not the standard App Store installer).
A very useful tool, even for a free version.
There is no "Batch generate" button here.
Only "Settings" (working fine) and "Update Preview" (disabled to click)
Vitor, try it with a family open not a project. Had the same issue and that solved it.
I find it to be very intuitive, simple and refined. Not a half-done job like some independent applications. Well done IconicBIM
Very helpful. Solves a long standing Revit problem.
A very useful, indispensable program, seems to have been born for Revit.
Thank you, Dionisio! We took great effort to make it a seamless experience.
I work with BIM Implementation and during our workings we need to create several families. Although I already use a good workflow when seting preview images, this plug-in makes it much easier! I loved it.
Very glad to hear you like it, Artur! It's only going to get better :)
Are you a smaller firm with a vast in-house library that looks like a random pile of scary Revit files? Are you interested in sharing your content, but too much of the preview images look garbled- through no fault of your own? PIG is hands down the best, most affordable solution to getting your "family presentation" all cleaned up. Just point it to the directory that you store your library at, and away it goes! Any new family saved to that directory can also be set to receive this spit and polish treatment. No more unsightly presentations when uploading to online libraries either (I am looking at you, Revit City)!
This is long-overdue and brilliant! Very smooth functionality and I love that it runs automatically.
