Great models! They are really neat, but as others mentioned, the tolerances are all 0.4mm, which is way too much. I modified the files and brought all of the tolerances to 0.2mm, added a single full layer into the base so that it doesn't fall through, and put a slight angle on the inside edge of the skirts so that they actually have tolerances closer to 0.1mm opening into 0.2mm. With these modifications, there is no need for glue and they stand up great on their own. I will post pictures once the second model finishes printing. I've attached the files I modified if anyone is interested. The main bodies are unmodified, so they are not attached. The OP can feel free to add them if you like the modifications.

I'm glad you liked the model and thanks for the help. Unfortunately, my printer Anet A8 gives poor results with a thickness of 0.2 mm.
I will look at your printed models with pleasure!
I added a link to your comment in the description.

Nice model Tanya. Any special way to fold the napkins?

Thank you!
Bend a napkin diagonally and insert it into a cell as in the photo.

Ofigenski! Prosto ofigenski!

Hi. I love it. I have no idea how to put the napkins in it but I love it and I'll let my wife and daughters take care of actually doing it.
The fit is VERY loose - I printed all the ballerina parts, the base slot is i'd say 0.2mm too big it and the ballerina is too big for the 2 skirts - so if you try to assemble without gluing you can barely make it stand for a few seconds until the tiniest wind blows on it. so I just glued it and now it is now standing solid..
I'll post a make later on once girls are back and decorate it with napkins.

Thanks for the feedback!
Yes indeed, the ballerina’s skirt and base should be glued to the ballerina’s body. This will provide a solid model.
I would be glad to see your napkin holder.

This is awesome! Have you ever considered a "theme"? Like one that looks more like a wedding dress?

Thanks! I do not understand your question.

I meant doing one where it looked like a wedding dress (with veil), or like a sweet 16 party - something where it matches the party. My cousin has a wedding coming up, and I thought these would look awesome on the tables as decorations.

Either way, they still look awesome!

Yes, of course, I have some interesting ideas for a wedding composition.
But in your case, it looks like as a custom work. If you need my help, then I can do it for you. You can contact me here: https://www.fiverr.com/tanyaakinora
