Solid Edge - Drawing gears

I know it's a bit of a long shot but does anyone off here use the solid edge program for making 3D drawings?

Using it just now for a uni project but I need to draw some gears and can't get it to work. The problem is that it's a really small gear wheel, about 20mm diameter, but everytime I put in the spec I need it just makes a cylinder without any teeth. I can make gears of bigger diameter fine but really having no luck with this.

Anyone know how to make these smaller gears?

Thanks.

forgot to update this. I got a gear in the end as someone on another forum sent me the file for the gear I needed. Still don't know why it wouldn't work as he made the gear in the exact same way I was trying.

Cheers for the offers of help anyway though.
