I tried to use Trimmer mesh on a cylinder and when I look the cross section of the mesh it is not symmetrical and has some bad cells in it ... I do not know if they are bad but they don't look rectangular. What could be the reason. I used the same with a bigger base value n looks fine. What could be wrong? How can I get rid of it?

It could be graphics, try changing slightly the section where you cut or plot the 3D mesh but use a cutting plane to see if it really is that way.

In the Geometry options there is something called face culling, try changing this it could improve how the mesh is displayed (but not always)
