It sounds to me like you want to do a multiple process print with no top layers on the first process and top layers on the second process. Not sure how to get the infill shown on just the one side wall.. my guess is you may have to model it that way or truly cut it.
Yeah, I'm already doing that to prevent the top layer from printing, but I don't think there is a way to avoid a full perimeter. I probably need to manually modify the g-code to replace the perimeters on the inside and replace them with rapid travel movements.
I was trying to avoid dremeling the part, can't think of a different way to do this. I'm not too sure how infill without a perimeter will print anyhow, with nothing to stick to it might just shrivel away.
I would do this with two models and two processes. The first model would be the bottom part, have that process print with 0 top layers. the second model would start where the first model left off, print with no bottom layers and finish the job for the top layers. This second model would have your corner cut out.
Use TinkerCAD ('cause its easy') and build your two models there. before you export the two models, move them together so that they look like your final part and share the same reference "zero". Export the two halves separately as STL files. Any CAD package should allow this, but TinkerCAD makes it trivial.
Import the two models into S3D, select both models, do edit->group to group the models together, then select edit->align to reference (or something like that, I'm not in front of my computer), which makes the parts print from the same reference, to look like they did in TinkerCAD.
This should create a two-process print that will combine the two pieces just as you want. At least, I think that it will.
