aslong as your not making anything that requires high structural strength then PLA works just fine, in general terms it prints alot more clean and precise than abs so its often a preferable material if your after fine detail (your hexapod for example is probably better off in PLA than ABS).

personally I love the fine detail I can get with PLA still and for that matter its more forgiving nature when you want to bridge gaps without having to use support material, dont get me wrong, you can get detailed results of similar quality with ABS but it requires alot more delicate tweeking of settings and speeds as ABS is a great deal more fickle to print well.

as for the OP's approach to ABS printing?...... if your going that far to get a solid quality print you might aswell just bite the soddin bullet and enclose the printer entirely, its really not that hard, especially on a delta. :huh
