Hello, 

I am looking for 8 mm configuration profile for Cura. It would be amazing if someone could upload theirs or if they could help me to create one. Thanks in advance.

Very few people have printers with 8mm nozzles. Perhaps you could ask 3d Wasp if they have a working Cura profile for their printer (or what other slicer they suggest you use). Or you could tell us what problems you run in to when you try to make a profile yourself, and perhaps we can help you. In theory it should be as easy as starting with a "Custom FFF Printer" and setting the Nozzle Diameter to 8 mm in the Machine Settings.

 

Briefly looking at your other post on this subject, I can tell you that Cura normally expects to print in "loops". If you take a model and make a cross-section, Cura will - in its simplest form - trace the outline of that cross section. This means that if you make a model that is 8mm wide to be printed with an 8mm nozzle, Cura will still do two passes "around" the model.
