Straightness: a condition where points of a surface or axis are in a straight line. For screw threads it refers to the variation of a thread pitch cylinder or cone axis from the theoretical straight line. The straightness tolerance specifies a tolerance zone within which the pitch cylinder axis must lie. Straightness may also be applied to the major cylinder and minor cylinder.
