Happy that it is working as expected! 

To my knowledge you cannot "measure" anything in the deformed shape, but what you certainly can do is to plot for example the vertical component of the deformation and use the sample probe feature selecting appropriate nodes and take the difference between the maximum vertical and an "undeformed" node.  Or with more sofisticated approaches, you could define a path along the horizontal surface of interest, and plot (again) the vertical component of the displacement.  And finally, at a third level of complexity, you can program some APDL-snippet extracting the same information, operating on it and finally cleanly writing it out on a file, each time a new line.  Just my two cents.
