One of the few weak points in MATLAB is its low speed when displaying 3D vector plots. Paraview is an open source visualization tool that seems to work pretty well.
This contribution shows how the MATLAB 3D flow example is written to a binary VTK file.
In Paraview follow these steps:
* CTRL+O to open the generated VTK file
* Hit Apply in Object inspector
* Click Glyph and hit Apply: The 3D vector field is displayed.
