It is difficult to understand your question.

1) Do you mean that instead of a rectangular bounding box you would prefer
some kind of cylinder. You could plot a wireframe cylinder that enclosed
around the rest of your plot, but it probably wouldn't look very good. To
make the cylinder look like a cylinder it would probably have too many lines
that would confuse the rest of the plot.

2) Do you mean that you want to plot using cylindrical coordinates?  Then
you could use the CylindricalPlot3D command from the ParametricPlot3D
standard package.

If you could give an example or more information you will probably obtain a
more helpful answer.

Is there any way to make Plot3D display its output in a cylinder, instead of
a box?
