It looks like MATLAB and Mathematica is often used for post-processing and data visualization of 3D vector data.

Now consider you are simulating 3D objects and get out gradient fields etc., is there a software or library one can use to change perspective of this 3D visualized vector data like it usual in CAD tools, so you can zoom away via mouse or into that structure, change perspective without having to alter complete post-processing or doing visualizing of 2D slices to get "3D" impression.

Absolutely. You should check out VisIt, Paraview, Tecplot, Ensight, and similar tools.

I would add to that IBM's Data Visualization Explorer, commonly known as OpenDX (Wikipedia entry). It's extremely versatile and open source as well.

    $\begingroup$ @GodricSeer: You see the similar answers(link-only) above. Why me? And i don't agree with you because you can find the link (if changed) from answers with a little googling. $\endgroup$ – Ömer Sep 4 '13 at 15:49

    $\begingroup$ I wasn't trying to single you out. Your answer was flagged as low quality by the system and I saw it in the review menu, where I can only see the question, not other answers. You answer was passable, but a very obvious point for improvement was to add a sentence or two about the program you were suggesting and why it met the asker's requirements. $\endgroup$ – Godric Seer Sep 4 '13 at 16:46
