If a dremel can cut through ceramic wall tiles, why can't it cut through ceramic floor tiles?

I read up on a trick that enables you to score a line in a floor tile like you would with a normal scorer, except this can be circle shaped or whatever...and then you saw from the edge to the scored line with a tile saw. Each sawn part then snaps off from the scored line to make a circular shape.

They make diamond dusted circular bits for making holes in tile. It's alot easier then what you would want to do.

Floor tile is usually more dense than a wall tile so the drill bits cant grind through it. Plus the dremal motor isnt all that powerful. A wet saw is best for cutting floor tile if you are doing a lot. The circular bit mentioned above will work for a few tile.
