How to collect multiple measurements of 2D figures from a 3D part

I am still relatively new to Onshape so I am hoping that there is a simple answer to this question that I haven't considered. I recently created a 3D ellipsoid type object, and used a combination of a plane, split and linear pattern function to split the ellipsoid into multiple parts down a given axis. The result of this patterned split yields about 40-50 parts that are essentially just circular or elliptical cross sections of the ellipsoid as seen below.

I am interested in the dimensions of these split entities such as diameter, surface area, length, etc. which I can see when I select a face or outline of each part (seen in the image below). 

I am wondering if there is a way to efficiently get the values of interest for ALL cross sections created by these splits. I could always manually click through each part and record the data in excel but figured there may be a much simpler way to get the information for all parts simultaneously.
