Probably not what you want, but I usually draw a radius or half circle on a flat face, and use the follow me tool to go around the perimeter of where I want to have the roundover. It’s also how I do moulding, chamfers around pieces, etc.

Like “Mos” said, just use the Follow Me tool built into Sketchup.

The trick is to create the profile perpendicular to the path .

Thank you for sharing this link. I was really struggling with the follow me command. This really made sense and was extremely helpful!
