Applying a surface roughness, texture, or appearance to a solid

Not sure this is exactly the correct place for this question, so feel free to move if there is more applicable forum.

I am fairly new to Solidworks, but so far I am very happy with it. However, I have been asked to do a couple things that I haven't figured out how do yet. We are making some solids for 3D printing, and I was asked if there was a way to give a surface appearance/feel to the solid.Specifically a rough surface like typical poured concrete and/or the staggered grooves like a brick wall.

 

I suppose I could make dozens of short cuts for the brick wall, but it sure seems like there should be an easier way. And I have no idea how to give it a "rough" surface like concrete.

 

Any ideas?
