Recently I've been following an online tutorial video on 3D modelling, and in the current course I'm working on, I am currently engaged on modelling a gear, however I've run into a bit of a problem in this endeavor.

The problem I'm having is that I am unable to extrude the model in the same manner as described in the video, by switching the Pivot Point from Median Point to 3D Cursor and then extruding outwards to make the teeth of the gear. Unfortunately, switching between the Median Point and the 3D Cursor doesn't seem to make any noticeable difference in the manner of how the gear is supposed to be extruded.

How my version looks: enter image description here


The example shown in the video of how it is supposed to appear enter image description here

Any insight into this matter would be greatly appreciated.
