different layer height for two extruders

Guys is it possible to adjust different layer height for two nozzles ( .8mm & .4mm) ?

At this point i have the height for both nozzles at 0.2mm but it seems to be two small for the 0.8mm nozzle.

You can define which part of the print is done by which nozzle/extruder.
Say, you want to print infill with the 0.8 nozzle: you can tell slicer to "combine infill every x" layers. Then the infill layer height will be two or three times the normal layer height.
Be aware, that you only save time with bigger infill, because every tool change takes time ( heating up, retraction, wipe tower )

Cura 2.4 has a layer height setting for each nozzel as well I think. I haven't really used dual extrusion much yet though.
