How to create parting lines without requiring draft on casting?

I am new to working with Solidworks. I design sand molds and sand cores from a solid casting model for 3D printing. With a 3D printer I don't need to add draft to my molds like traditional metal casting sand molds require. I am trying to create parting lines using the "parting line" tool in the "molding tools" tab. But without draft it will not allow me to create the parting lines. Is there a way to get around the "draft analysis" without the need for draft?
