If you want to print metal filled materials then you may end up wanting a drum type polisher to finish them without a lot of manual effort. At least I did!

The pictures above show some markers for the game Terraform Mars that were designed by Frank Strauss and are available here https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/142444/3d-printable-stl-terrain-pieces. These prints were done in Collorfabb Copperfill and you can see how they looked when printed and after seven hours in the tumbler.

Details concerning this thing are covered in this Instructable :https://www.instructables.com/id/Tumbling-Polisher-for-3D-Metalfill-Prints/

The container is http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5811.

This thing is not really a work in progress as much as it will become a work in progress for you if you try to print it. It works for me but the design is a bit rough. As I said, though, it works fine for me so I am done with it.
