CAD teach 3D should do this immediately... Otherwise use CAD Teach 2D twice, once at top, then at bottom, then finally construct the cylinder. Can you send the CAD to me? You can delete other surfaces in model if it's sensitive data.

You could also measure them as 2 separate cylinders then under the construction tabs (green icons) there is an option to EXTRACT RAW DATA. That will make a cloud, then turn that cloud into points, then best fit those points to a cylinder.

More steps but it can be done.
