    I found this video it had some useful data for glues that where tested on PLA. Of course if you using ABS your choice would be acetone, but not true on PLA. Hope you find this helpful.

    check out loctite 406 instant adhesive (and it means INSTANT). Works fantastic if your glueing parts togather.

    @JohnShuba there is a guy who did a youtube video gluing two PLA prints with Loctite 406 and he didn't even let it set a full 12 seconds and it held really well.
