Preview Image Generator (P.I.G.) – Create Clear, Consistent Family Preview Images with One Click

From the Autodesk App Store:

Free Features:
  • Choose your own default appearance settings & Revit category specific settings.
  • Options to hide connectors, host elements, reference planes and more!
  • Simple licensing system
  • Automatic notification of new feature updates

Minimal space used in Add-ins ribbon

General settings, including the ability to run P.I.G. automatically when saving individual families.

Check out the exciting features available in P.I.G. Batch here:
  • The settings file can be shared across your company ensuring consistent preview images.
  • **Automatically regenerates the preview image every time families are saved!
  • Batch process new preview images for thousands of families at a time!
  • Upgrade files from previous versions of Revit in the process.

**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 for more information.

Note: This app uses a custom installer (and not the standard App Store installer).
