That's one thing that surprisingly does not work very well on PLA. I have a thing I had printed up, working on filling and smoothing the surfaces I want to not have the 3D printed texture when I get around to making a silicone mold.

The bits I've super glued together have come off a few times, which results in a setback on the process due to having to redo some of the finishing.

With ABS a little acetone or common ABS pipe cement will have it stuck together permanently.
