The BIM Family Toolkit Technology Preview allows you to easily export Inventor configuration data from iParts and iAssemblies (parameters, file properties & component visibility) directly to Revit families. Once the family data has been imported into Revit, you can create a simplified version and leverage the imported parameters and properties to reduce the amount of time it takes you to create BIM Ready Models.
This recent update adds a set of installers for 2012. The 2011 installers are still present. The add-on for Inventor 2011 and Revit 2011 will still expire and cease operation on August 1, 2011; however, the add-on for Inventor 2012 and Revit 2012 will expire and cease operation on November 20, 2011.
You can interoperate between 2011 and 2012 versions:
