Figure 4.

The simulated nanometric cutting process at the cutting distances of (a) 8 nm, (b) 12 nm and (c) 16 nm. The cutting depth is 0.8 nm and cutting speed is 100 m/s. The figures are shown in the cross-sectional views. The light blue color shows the cutting chips and dislocations inside the workpiece
