Flow (Preview): Isocurve setting the same but toolpath direction changes

This past Friday I created a bunch of Flow (Preview) toolpaths and chose the correct Isocurve setting to generate toolpaths like so:

The result is a few stepdowns where each stepdown is horizontal.

 

This morning some of the toolpaths would generate with the toolpaths milling in the opposite direction like so:

Now all Flow (Preview) toolpaths are like that.

 

Never changed the "Along U"s to "Along V"s or vice versa but the toolpath directions changed.

The only change I made was changing the stepover value from .01" to .008".

Your first (good) Flow(Preview) is set to "V". Your long-time-calculating one is set to "U". Setting it to "V" and changing nothing else gives me this:

Not sure when the save point on that file was.

 

Friday my toolpaths looked like this:

Yesterday morning (after making no changes to the toolpath's iso direction settings) the toolpaths look like this:

Well, the file you shared was all I have to go on. I'm not sure how it could have gotten into that state where the U/V changed, so we're likely going to need more data points to indicate that there's an issue

This forum should have a reminder option like Reddit where I can just type "RemindMe! [time] [message]" to send me a reminder email.
