    I have a big project with big dimensions, and I need a Cbeam actuator with 2 meters

    C-Beam® Double Wide Gantry Actuator Bundle

    The max width in openbuilds is 1000 mm but I need 2 meters of Cbeam and 2 meters of Lead Screw.:

    8mm Metric Acme Lead Screw

    Anyone know where I can buy a lead screw with 2 meters? 8mm it's not enough ?

    8mm just isn't going to work for you. 1Mtr is reasonable, 1.5mm is getting dodgy with whip, 2mtrs, don't bother! :banghead:
    You should be considering at least 15mm, or bigger screw, for that size. Backlash nuts for that size screw generally can't be accommodated within the C Beam structure. :(
    Max C Beam is 1.5mtr.
