Hi Ruben,

You will need to create an array that holds the vector field, likely either
a vtkFloatArray or vtkDoubleArray, to store your vector field. Set the
number of tuples in the array to the number of elements in your vector.
Then you will need to add this array to either the point or cell data in
your data set as appropriate. Finally, just write out your data set with
the writer.
