    pretty easy in openscad.

    You'd just remove the skull model from the interior of the diamond.

    Most cad packages should let you do this.

    okay.
    The short answer is you could grind up unneeded prints. But wthout proper temperature processing of the plastic - which i doubt an add on hopper will do. The results will not be very good.
