A simple vector.

A simple vector.

I need to draw a simple 3D vector to a point in space. How do I do it? (using MathCad 11.2)

I have data arranged in arrays based on the coordinate value(x-array, y-array, z-array) because thats the only way I can get the points in the right place or to appear at all.

For example...
           / 1.995  \
point1x := | 5.235  |
           \ -1.193 /

           / 2.390  \
point1y := | 5.235  |
           \ -0.292 /

           / 5.548  \
point1z := | -7.681 |
           \ -5.076 /

//Plot box

|     |________     |
|    /   .          |
|   /               |

|                   |

This plots the three points I gave coordinates for.
I want to specifically draw vectors from the origin to each point in space, and label them on the graph.

If there's a way to lock the axes @ (0,0,0) that would also be helpful.

Its a directional magnetic field from certain points about a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon.

The origin represents the point in space the field strength was computed from. The vectors represent the direction of the magnetic field.
