'vlokken': (from the site of i.materialise, they offer this finish on their sls nylon models):
The process of adding a velvet finish to your models is called flocking, a fairly straight forward process. First, a suitable adhesive is applied to the surface to be flocked. The flock is then applied, penetrating the surface of the adhesive to create the desired velvet finish.
Electrostatic flock applicators charge the flock particles which are then attracted to the grounded surface that is to be flocked. Electrostatic application ensures that the fibers all end up standing at right angles to the surface resulting in a velvet finish.
If I understand your meaning of "filling" correctly you mean pouring someting inside during or after printing ?
I would also be very interested in "filling" the surface, basically best way to sand, fill, paint PLA.
And maybe best ways & tools (appart from a tumbler) to use on bronze/copper fill, best dremel tools .... hate manual sanding
edit; and I have no idea what you mean by VLOKKEN, for me that's the chocolate stuff you put on a sandwich...
