I wrote a blog post which shows how to do that. Take a look at http://pyscience.wordpress.com/2014/10/05/from-ray-casting-to-ray-tracing-with-python-and-vtk/ <http://pyscience.wordpress.com/2014/10/05/from-ray-casting-to-ray-tracing-with-python-and-vtk/>

I read the example http://www.vtk.org/Wiki/VTK/Examples/Cxx/GeometricObjects/OrientedArrow <http://www.vtk.org/Wiki/VTK/Examples/Cxx/GeometricObjects/OrientedArrow> here, but I still don't understand how to do this. It seems to vis one arrow we need to follow quite a lot steps. I think my problem is the same with http://vtk.1045678.n5.nabble.com/vtkglyph3D-with-arrowsource-td1247920.html <http://vtk.1045678.n5.nabble.com/vtkglyph3D-with-arrowsource-td1247920.html> , though there is no answer below. :-(
