Hi, this is a wonderful design! I only can't find out how to fit the small parts. I mean, I can but I estimate an hour or more to fit them plus there is a lot of fine tunning. Is there an easy way maybe? :) Thanks in advance

You will want to merge the two models. This depends on the details of your slicer, but for example in Cura I can select both (shift-click), then right click and "merge models". This should give one single printable model with the parts overlapped properly

If you have a dual filament printer, you can typically select that each model be done with a specific filament color before merging the models. If you don't, then you can use a "pause at layer" technique so that after the bottom layer(s) are printed fully, you manually switch to a second color of filament. This doesn't give quit the same result but is still quite pretty. Or you can just print the whole thing in one color; that's what I did and I was satisfied with the results.

(you can also use other software to merge the two models; for instance the open source 'meshlab' can do this as well)
