  • Easy to use, with great results.
    Aseem Deshpande | October 29, 2018

    I recently rolled out Revit 2019 in our firm. In the process of upgrading and setting up all content, I have been using the P.I.G a lot. it’s a pleasure to work with it.  Even the out-of-the-box Autodesk content is not set up with any consistency. I have been using this software to have it all show up in a standardized format in our content sharing platform.

  • Saving a lot of days of work !
    J Carlos | October 10, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    With this application I have been able to process thousands of families and the improvement of productivity and quality of the projects that are modeled increases considerably. 100% Recommended to process large number of families.

    Technical support is great with an answer in less than 24 hours.

  • Processed Thousands of Files!
    James Gray | July 13, 2018

    This add-in helped us to generate a preview image on thousands of our families, allowing us to apply consistency to our office library. The ability to export high quality images of the previews has also helped us to review the content easily. I would highly recommend this add-in!!

  • Best Plugin Value Out There!
    Steve Bennett | March 21, 2018

    Having a preview image not present on about half our families has been a consistent user complaint. Within about an hour, I had finished processing our entire family library for Revit 2018. The previews now have a consistent look, they all have a preview image and the users are happy. This will save them time and avoid requiring them to open a family to see it. About the best bang for your buck to keep BIM users happy in your company.

  • I love P.I.G. Batch!
    Scott Neumann | February 22, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    P.I.G. makes it super easy to create clean and consistent preview images. I love that it works automatically to create the preview images for me. It made our content browser a thing of beauty which helps people find what they need. Excellent value!

  • Needs to be in your Revit collection of Add-ins!
    Brian Lindholm | January 23, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Add-in pays for itself in the first use, the batch process is amazingly fast and gets your entire library of previews cleaned up and standardized for visual appearance. But then it saves previews automatically to my synced standards every time a family is edited and closed. Simple and effective interface and settings that sync to all versions of Revit. Very Nice!

  • Must Have Add-In !
    Will Gow | November 29, 2017

    This is an excellent add-in to make batch previews the way you want without any issues. The Support is absolutely outstanding as well, just to add the icing...

    Artur Bessoni | November 20, 2017

    I work with BIM Implementation and during our workings we need to create several families. Although I already use a good workflow when setting preview images, this plug-in makes it much easier! I loved it.

  • What are your standards - Visual Style is important.
    Pierre Venter | November 15, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Point of Departure for Revit & BIM is standards. A requirement for both is consistency. Now this add-in does just that, just simply. Gets views matching visual style and detail level, all by category. The batch process is done over lunch; anyone looking into the library later will see exactly what they need. Consistently!
