We present some local and global results concerning the desingularization of vector fields by means of blowing-ups of the ambient space (supposed of dimension three). The local reduction has been made in an earlier work and here we present with complete proofs the globalization of the local algorithm for a special kind of vector fields: those which have a “true” strict tangent space or directrix.
