Regarding the Types, there are some from Misumi that offer milled surfaces for 30x30 extrusions. Is this desired, since it looks like only 2 sides are milled...

Thanks again!
Milled wouldn't be necessary for an FDM printer. It would be if you had something sliding on the extrusion.

Adding some additional input to help people avoid an issue that I just ran into. When ordering the 2020, make sure it's NUT 6 (not 5) otherwise it'll be a pain to find t-nuts. I ordered mine from McMaster-Carr, and didn't realize that all of the 2020 extrusions there are 5mm slots (not 6). The bed plate mounts that call for M5x10 button heads into M5x2020 T-nuts (which don't fit into the 5mm slots).
