2 switch to Skething tab -> create circle with center point in center of coordinate system
3 define radius -> Dimensions -> Radius -> click on cirle -> type for exaple 0,85m as radius -> screenshot
4 back to Modelling tab-> create one more plane for second base of cylinder(Z Offset -2,635m from first plane)-> repeat steps 1 2 3 and get second circle with radius 0,75m for example
5 Create -> Skin/Loft -> by Profile Selection Method choose Select Individual Profile -> select Profile 1 with one sketch circle and Profile 2 with another-> Generate
