    I guess the limitation is the wall thickness of 0.1mm. You could try to set the feature "Print thin walls" but be aware that with a 0.4 nozzle you will not have good results. 

     

    Additionally you will run in problems when printing a single object, because the layer will not have enough time to cool down, so print more than one, set fan speed to max. and use a smaller nozzle.
