[vtkusers] 2D chart along a volume in 3D

In an old presentation from 2011 [1], on page 19 ("Overlay on 3D Scene")
there's a screenshot of a 2D chart next to a cube in 3D.

Anyone know how it was created? I can hardly find any documentation on
creating 2D charts and placing them in a 3D scene.

I have a cylindrical volume and would like to show a 2D plot along the side
of the cylinder, the Y axis sticking out perpendicularly from its surface.
The attached rough sketch shows the idea.

Is this possible? If so, any pointer on how it could be accomplished would
be much appriciated.

Also, would it be possible to interact with the plot if it drawn like this?
(e.g. inspect its points using the mouse)

Thanks in advance,
