Offset surface regardless of output validity

Hello,

 

While creating offset surface using Snippet api_offset_face(), the api internally checks for bad geometry and informs via an error in case there is one.

However, I wish to be able to create an output offset surface, regardless of its validity. 

In other words, is there a way I can force the Acis api to give me an offset surface irrespective of whether the output is valid or not?

I understand that the resulting surface would be unsuitable for further operations, but it is important for me to get the invalid surface nonetheless.

 

Is there a way to get this behavior?

 

Thanks.

 

Abhijit.
