[Paraview] Diagrams displayed on sections in 3D

My question is related to a typical problem occurring in postprocessing
of finite element results for shell elements. Usually one would like to
display sectional forces as diagrams, but plotted directly onto the 3D
shell model, as in https://ibb.co/irp2v5.
I can imagine that it should be feasible to create a paraview filter
that can do the following:
- create a plane as in the clip/cut filter
- select the component to display (membrane force x/y/magnitude,
moments, shear force etc)
- scale the diagram appropriately
Similar functionality would be useful for beam/truss results,
visualizing forces along the elements.
I'm quite sure that I'm not the first one with such a demand. Does
anyone know of a paraview plugin that would accomplish this?
Thanks and best regards
