Depends on what they are adding. There are different fillers for different purposes. I don't think making it thicker would be desirable.

Thickener may be useful where the inlay is on a sloped/curved surface to try and control for any liquid runs outside of the machined areas.

Many powders available are 'metallic', and suspend in the epoxy creating interesting patterns and effects. All the rage right now, just one more thing I should have kept up with when I did it years ago.

IF you're going to try the 5 minute epoxy you probably should count on it starting to set in 3 minutes.
AND, unless you're buying the 5 minute epoxy already colored you're probably going to be out of luck.
IF you find a two-part 5 minute epoxy you're still going to lose a couple of minutes making sure that it has
been mixed thoroughly. BEWARE!
