I would start by seeing what the minimum temp is for good deposition with the specific filament you are using. Heat build up is your enemy with such a small print.

Use a thin layer height. Maybe .1mm

In expert settings, enable cool head lift.

Run the cooling fan at full speed.

You may even want to put a table fan blowing through the printer for additional cooling.

check the layer view.

If walls are getting too thin, they cannot be printed, or you might loose some tiny details.

start a print and see what happens. This size it won't take very long. You would need some support also for the overhangs, I guess.
