Drawing Small gears



I've been trying to draw some small gears (about 20mm diameter) in solid edge but I'm not having any luck. When I click create after putting in the spec of the gear needed it just makes a cylinder without any teeth.

Can anyone tell me how I can sort it so that it puts the teeth on there?

I can draw larger gears fine but just can't seem to get this to work at all.

Another thing - is it possible to draw a rack and pinion in v18 without having to draw the teeth yourself? I know it can be done in v19 but can't see any way of doing it in v18.

I'm using v18 btw.
