mix 0.8 and 0.4 nozzle in one print?

OK, I am a purely visual kinda guy and trying to wrap my head around this. Any examples of why this would be good?

Not saying it is not, just cannot figure it without and example as it seems it would create incongruities between areas. Gaps and such.

    Great example is that you can print the inside of an object with a 0.8mm and the outside with 0.4mm. So you keep details on the outside, and get higher printing speed on the inside.

    And if you set "infill layer thickness" to a multiple of the generic layer thickness, the speed increase is even more (this is also possible with 2x 0.4mm nozzle by the way)

    Ok. That makes sense. Thanks for the explanation :)
