Figure 3.

The simulation results of the different model sizes:a2-million-atom model,b4-million-atom model andc10-million-atom model. The lower figures are front views of the models. The cutting depth is 4 nm and the cutting speed is 100 m/s. The blue color shows the dislocations formed inside the workpieces during cutting
