plot_vector_field3d and three.js viewer

I guess there might be some mistake in my code, but I cannot use plot_vector_field3d and show the result with three.js viewer. The code is

var('x y z')
f = (x, y, z)
show(plot_vector_field3d(f, (x,-3,3), (y,-3,3), (z,-3,3), aspect_ratio=1), viewer='threejs')

and it only shows an empty box. How to explain this behaviour?

Unfortunately the plot of vector fields with threejs is not implemented yet. This is one of the reasons why threejsis not the default 3d viewer in Sage yet, see the "con" section of

Moreover, the person who started the implementation of threejs in Sage cannot work further on it at the moment. So, if you (or anybody else reading this) feel like to implement vector fields in threejs, you are very welcome. This would be a nice way to contribute to the open-source project SageMath! Please contact me for guidance if required.

Thank you very much for your comment and attention!! I'm afraid I'm not very used to the code inside Sage... but I hope I may contribute to SageMath in the future.

Very good! A good starting point is; see also for implementing new parents.
