im assuming shapeways uses some pretty high end vibratory tumblers for their polished WSF parts. Is it possible to get parts even smoother if left in tumbler longer or upgrading the tumbling machines or media?

does the dyeing take place before or after tumbling?

I don't know the answer to your first question.

Dyeing takes place after tumbling ...

I do hand polishing using dremel and Sof-Lex™ Spiral Finishing and Polishing Wheels.
Then polish with peek polish or lite rouge compounds.
