beams trim feature is failing after update of beams feature script

arjan_bokarjan_bok Member Posts: 13 PRO
Hello I have frame which I drew earlier and now want to adapt to some new measurements and a trim feature that used to work okay is now failing on me.
Instead of keeping the larger part of the beam its result is the counterpart hidden inside the other beam used for trimming, as shown in the screenshots.

I am using official V27 of the Beams featurescript.
I tried rotating the beam or using another offset. Also tried flipping the line in the sketch on which the beam is based. 
but nothing seems to change.

Anyone any idea on how to fix this?

    I did some major changes to trim for performance reasons - clearly not all good changes it seems. Can you create a support ticket and add my name to it so it gets directed to me? Please share the doc with support if that is ok. 

    In the meantime, you can revert back to a previous version of Beams that works and continue to use that until I find where the problem lies. Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for the help.

    Resolved (hopefully). Please try Official V28.

    @NeilCooke Just a minor FIX... You can delete line 565
    var deletePlanes = [];

    Un saludo,
