Marc Cushman claims the effect was left out due to the rush to get the episode to air. I suspect that's just speculation on his part, though.
I could believe that. What actually irks me more is the fact that Scotty shows Kirk the exact position where he needs to cut through the door mechanism of the Engineering Control Room.

But when he actually starts it's right below the room sign.

It's interesting that in "Way to Eden" (same procedure) they posted the camera in an angle which made it difficult or impossible to see whether the beam was invisible or simply not visible:
