Quick install

The addon is not in the official list of selected addons. You have to manually install the addon. The best thing to do is:

  1. Download the file io_mesh_gwyddion.zip from here: root-1.de/X-Download/io_mesh_gwyddion.zip. (Do not unzip)
  2. Go to Menu: File -> User Preferences ... -> Addons (top)
  3. At the bottom, push Install addon and choose the downloaded file
  4. Activate the addon (check box, right) and apply Save as Default if you want the addon to be active after each start of Blender.

Note that if you update the script (steps 1. to 4.), you have to re-start Blender!

Notes

The addon permits importing Gwyddion (gwyddion.net) Scanning Probe Microscopy images into Blender. It is a very first version, which still needs some improvements! For instance, the loading of the images needs to be improved since it is a bit slow. On the contrary, it seems to be quite stable ... well at least with my AFM images, which I have created with the latest Gwyddion version 2.26.
