June 2020 Thingiverse Customizer Weirdness

by Bikecyclist

Hi everyone,

I've had this customizable thing up and working fine for quite a while:


Now I've made some minor improvements, and customizer doesn't handle these at all, apparently handling a "difference" like an "intersection". In the current local OpenSCAD version, the same parameters work just fine.

Here's the improved version ... change "grip cutoff angle" to 20 degrees, and you should (but currently won't) get the same result as with the old, working version linked above:


Any information on the problem, hints, workarounds, or pointers to any mistakes I might have made would be welcome! :-)
