The molecular-dynamic simulation of denting absolutely rigid wedge in niobium nanocrystal іs carried out. The behavior of niobium crystal lattice in conditions of deep 3D-deformatіon including elastic displacements, shifting and cutting with essential mass transfer of bulk and surface layers of material is investigated. The data concerning atom-structural rearrangements on nanolevel at different corners of sharpening of a wedge – 30о and 60о for the first time are received. The after-effect, namely relaxation of a lattice after cutting at the presence of a wedge (limited relaxation) and after its removing (free relaxation) are also investigated.
