Alain,
You could use
ListPlotVectorField3D[vecfield, VectorHeads -> True, PlotRange -> All];
It probably makes sense to use Union on your list of vectors, simply to
avoid double plotting. It doesn't seem to cause a problem here but sometimes
it does cause problems in the speed of 3D rendering.
I wouldn't use ListPlotVectorField3D at all. If you have DrawGraphics you
could try the following to obtain much prettier arrows.
Needs["DrawGraphics`DrawingMaster`"]
plot1 =
Draw3DItems[
{AbsoluteThickness[2], SurfaceColor[Gold],
EdgeForm[ColorMix[Gold, Black][0.5]],
Arrow3D[First[#], First[#] + 2Last[#], HeadScaling3D -> 1.5,
HeadLength3D -> 0.3, HeadWidth3D -> 0.7] & /@
Union[vecfield]},
NeutralLighting[0.3, 0.5, 0.1],
Background -> Linen,
PlotRange -> All,
BoxStyle -> Gray,
ImageSize -> 500];
SpinShow[plot1, SpinOrigin -> {0, 0, 0}, Frames -> 48]
SelectionMove[EvaluationNotebook[], All, GeneratedCell]
FrontEndTokenExecute["OpenCloseGroup"]; Pause[0.5];
FrontEndExecute[{FrontEnd`SelectionAnimate[200, AnimationDisplayTime -> 0.1,
AnimationDirection -> Forward]}]

Here is a vector field:
In[2]:= vecfield={{{0, 0, 4}, {1, 0, 0}}, {{0, 0, 4}, {1, 0, 0}}, {{0, 0,
4}, {1, 0, 0}},
{{0, 0, 4}, {1, 0, 0}}, {{0, 0, 4}, {1, 0, 0}}, {{0, 0, 4}, {1, 0, 0}},
{{0, 0, 4}, {1, 0, 0}}, {{4, 0, 0}, {0, 0, 1}},
{{2, 2*Sqrt[3], 0}, {0, 0, 1/2}}, {{-2, 2*Sqrt[3], 0}, {0, 0, -1/2}},
{{-4, 0, 0}, {0, 0, -1}}, {{-2, -2*Sqrt[3], 0}, {0, 0, -1/2}},
{{2, -2*Sqrt[3], 0}, {0, 0, 1/2}}, {{4, 0, 0}, {0, 0, 1}},
{{0, 0, -4}, {-1, 0, 0}}, {{0, 0, -4}, {-1, 0, 0}},
{{0, 0, -4}, {-1, 0, 0}}, {{0, 0, -4}, {-1, 0, 0}},
{{0, 0, -4}, {-1, 0, 0}}, {{0, 0, -4}, {-1, 0, 0}}, {{0, 0, -4}, {-1, 0,
0}}};
In the following I get only 4 arrows:
In[3]:= ListPlotVectorField3D[vecfield, VectorHeads -> True]
Out[3]= -Graphics3D-
In the following I get all the expected arrows (but without the
heads). I could stop here and ask why but ...
In[4]:= ListPlotVectorField3D[vecfield]
Out[4]= -Graphics3D-
... in the following, I do get all the expected arrows with heads,
but why? As I understand, Union is only supposed to sort and
remove duplicates, so what difference does it make as far as
ListPlotVectorField3D is concerned? Plus I have experimented with
"some amount" of duplication without problem.
In[5]:= ListPlotVectorField3D[Union[vecfield],
VectorHeads -> True]
Out[5]= -Graphics3D-
Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks,
Alain
