Three-dimensional molecular dynamics simulations are performed to investigate the AFM-based nanometric cutting process of single crystal copper. The effects of cutting velocities (180, 360, and720 m/s) on the cutting force, the ratio of the thrust force and cutting force and subsurface layers. The results show that the dislocations nucleate beneath the tool, and propagate along the [-11-1] direction in the (111) plane. The effects of the nanocutting action from the tool on the subsurface damaged layers decrease gradually as the distance from the tool tip increases. With the increasing cutting speed, the cutting forces increase accordingly. However, the ratio of the the ratio the thrust force and cutting force decrease as the cutting speeds increase. With the proceeding of the cutting process, that tends to the same on the whole.
