gear mate "can not be solved"

Hi All I'm hoping that someone else has had this problem or can solve it for me.


I'm working with a relatively small assembly and trying to mate some gears together. These gears are not cut (they are just "cylinders"). The two gears are mounted on shafts right next to each other and intersect each other.


When I click to more both individually they rotate just fine. However, when I try to gear mate them and click on the two surfaces of them it comes back with "Thie mate cannot be solved".


I am running SW 2013.


Thanks all, hope someone knows how to fix this.
