If you want to print PLA directly onto glass, you need a heated bed. PLA only sticks to hot glass, not cold glass. If you're printing onto tape, you don't need a heated bed, but it doesn't hurt either.

If you want to print ABS, you probably need a heatbed for it to stick to anything at all reliably. Enclosures are good too. ABS warps a lot from thermal stress.
