Building a new printer what material to use for frame.

I am building a Kossel XL style delta printer and wondering what type of filament to use for the corners. ABS, PLA, or PETG if someone has another suggestion let me know. I figured PLA because it is more ridged than ABS or PETG but not as strong.

PLA is fine for the parts that won't see heat, but for parts that see a lot of heat you should use ABS or another relatively high temp plastic.
