Hey guys. Do any of you happen to know the dimensions of the ar15 barrel nut? I need all the dimensions as I am trying to recreate this particular piece as a 3d model. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

You need to search the web for a dimensioned drawing or a cad drawing file.

I searched all over. I found lots of drawing and cad files for lowers and stuff, but not for a barrel nut.

I measured my nut to make my own wrench.

Here is the drawing of my nut wrench.
Its pretty simplistic, the drawing was done for my own use, and not for publication/distribution - its not pretty.

Me too. I tried to scale it. It appears to be 1.5" diameter on centers?
