> Is there a way to use a RepeatingTimer as in this example: https://www.vtk.org/Wiki/VTK/Examples/Python/Animation in which the loop for the animation (in the example the method execute()) can return output in each iteration that is used in the the next iteration? In other words, is there a way to use information that is calculated in one iteration for the next iteration? Sorry, I am not sure if the question is understandable.

I think you have your answer right there in that example :) In each
iteration, the self.timer_count field holds the output from the
previous iteration.

So yes, I think you can simply save the output from one iteration in a
field of the callback class, and use that as input in the next

Hope that makes sense.
