Parts printed from ABS to construct FoldaRap

Is there any compelling reason to print the FoldaRap parts from PLA? I am out and only have ABS around. Are there any downsides from construction from ABS?

Mine's made out of ABS and I have no issues - I'd have thought it's a better material if you want a long term construction (the only advantage I can see to PLA is that it doesn't require a heated bed and has a lower melt/extrude point)

I only recommend PLA because of it's lower friction to use it as a bearing/bushing/glider
Otherwise you can use what you prefer smiling smiley

I think I have enough PLA for those components. Thank you for the recommendation.
