is a tolerance specification and is found on engineering drawings to describe the position of the center of a bore or surface.
The toleranced straight line or plane must lie between two planes that are perpendicular to the reference with the set distance.
For bore centers, the axis of a bore must be inside a cylinder of the given diameter.
The cylinder axis must therefore coincide with the location of the bore axes to the given reference planes.
There are special cases where a point can be set as a toleranced element (e.g. center of a sphere).
