I have nothing to say...
but i'm a beginner and i comment here to have your ideas as experienced.
It's not CNT. It's an inorganic nanotube which its partial atomic charges
(0.48 , -0.48) is calculated by DFT.
When i optimized structure in other packages i put it in box with Z=3. So
first i have box Z=3 it means z dimension of nanotube is in z=0.85 to
z=2.15 and the "COM" is in z=1.5 .
So NT outer curvature which is in touch with AA is in z=2.15(0.85 + 1.3)
Did you calculate these arithmetics when the z dimension of CNT started
from z=0 to z=1.3?
People sometimes put NT between 2 walls? As the z=7 need much more water
and long calculations. Do you think put NT between two walls and use vaccum
3times distances between walls is better than multiply 2 to keep it
symmetric?(now you have 1.3 + 2*1.5 + thickness of two walls) how do you

faces everywhere! On the other hand, it does not hurt to try things and
have a little bit of initiative. I don't know why I am telling you this,
like you've never supervised students... Also, CNTs are simulated
exactly the same way (within these forcefield flavors) as pretty much
anything else you can think of. That is, until one day when you guys
decide to come with a testing Gromacs version that includes FFs not
relying on permanent topologies. ;)
