Default cilindrical coordinates

I'm modelling a pipeline with several bends. So the centerline will not be in the same cartesian direction everywhere. I would like to get result in cilindrical coordinates on every desired position in my pipeline for postprocessing purposes. Is it possible to make a line through the pipeline and defining this as the axial direction. Consequently, the face perpendicular to this direction will give tangential and radial components.

Unfortunately, I don't think that it is possible.

Sincerely, Jinwook
