How to draw a 2D shape perpendicular to a line?

I can’t seem to find something that should be quite simple based on SketchUp’s modus operandi: Given a line, how can I draw a 2D shape (e.g. a circle) perpendicular to it? I would have thought that doing this should be a fairly common occurrence, especially when making piping.

Get Chris Fullmer’s Perpendicular Face Tools from the extension warehouse.

Thanks. Works great.

Or use the Pie-tool:


I never remember that one. Note to self, must try harder.
