How can I define an average region on the entire circumference of pipes?

Answer

If you have modeled your pipe surface as a quadrangle surface, you can achieve this by splitting the surface at least once.

Figure 01 - Splitting Quadrangle Surface

Then, define a new average region for the surface by selecting the center, defining the dimension, specifying the vector, and determining the averaging type you want.

You can easily define the vector by picking two points.
