You might find this of use:

 http://www.enthought.com/enthought/wiki/TVTK

For specific examples of the kind seen in page, see here:

 http://www.enthought.com/enthought/wiki/TVTKIntroduction#tools-mlab

Read the example source code here:

 http://www.enthought.com/enthought/browser/trunk/src/lib/enthought/tvtk/tools/mlab.py#L1195


TVTK itself works with numpy arrays but getting the rest of the
enthought tool suite to build cleanly is problematic since it relies
on scipy_distutils.  If you do choose to check out the SVN tree you
might want to look at Pearu's lib_numpy branch here:

HTH.
