Hi Guys!



Plotting certain 3 Dimensional vector fields produces a not so pretty 3D graphics.



I looked at the options for VectorPlot3D and did not see any way to control the size of the arrowheads.



They are just too big for certain fields.



Here is a sample of simple code.



<<"VectorAnalysis`"

Clear[f]

f[x_,y_,z_]={y,-x,0};

rotF[x_,y_,z_]=Curl[f[x,y,z],Cartesian[x,y,z]];

VectorPlot3D[rotF[x,y,z],{x,-1,1},{y,-1,1},{z,-3,0},VectorStyle->"Arrow3D"]



Any suggestions as to how to make the vector field look more appealing?



Thanks,



Sergio Terrazas
