Sectioning is done in one direction only, while flip direction, a dialog box appears and shows model could not be sectioned by section line.
could be that the section line isn't long enough to cut whole extent of the model. that's what usually is for me, with not 'straight' models.
Try extending the section line.
Section line length is enough to cut the model. While flipping the section direction it shows error.
