If you are using our free Nexter theme, you can easily set the template to full width from the theme customizer. Go to General > Container > Content/Body and choose Full Width from the dropdown.

To remove any extra spacing around the container set the Spacing(Padding) to 0.

Now once you have set the full width template just add the Carousel Anything block on the page and create your slides it will create a full width carousel slider.

But if you are using the Container block of The Plus Blocks for Gutenberg to create your reusable blocks then make sure you have set the container width to Full from the Content Width dropdown, and the Width is set to 100%.
