[vtkusers] Adding Implicit Functions To Renderer?

If your goal is to actually view a vtkImplicitFunction, you'll first need
to give it to a vtkImplicitModeller that computes a volume with the signed
distance from the object the implicit function represents. Then you'll need
to apply a vtkContourFilter to it to extract a surface. Add this surface to
a mapper, assign the mapper to an actor, and you are done.

If your goal is to just view a plane, you can generate one with
vtkPlaneSource, connect its output to a mapper, and then assign the mapper
to an actor.
