SCD is in itself a diamond crystal. On the other hand, PCD is made by sintering the powdered single crystal diamond under the high temperature and high pressure using the binder of e.g. Co. Generally a single crystal such as diamond has a crystal orientation. By grinding according to the orientation, the wear makes progress easily. Diamond is ground by making use of this merit. On the other hand, as the orientation of each grain that composes the diamond sintered body is irregular, making PCD micro tools by grinding work is almost impossible.
