Points qualify for display if the hair line is this close to the normal direction on either the curve or the surface. Default is 1 degree. No points disqualify at 180.
The hair is exaggerated by this factor from the actual distance to the curve or surface. Default is 10.
Display the hair line for each qualifying point.
