Rule #1: Magnagate Finding is terrible at circles within circles.
Example: Tires. Try to scan one in, and you'll usually end up just getting the rims. Discs can also cause them grief
Rule #2: Magnagate Finding is inconsistent with cylinders from the right angle.
Example: Fire hydrants are probably the most accessible, though the next rule may also apply there.
Rule #3: Magnagate Finding is inconsistent with convex and concave objects.
Example: A cup can be a good example of concave technically, whereas convex would be something like a broomstick from the right angle.
Rule #4: Magnagate Finding does not work with round and hairy/fluffy objects.
Example: Tennis balls. They're round, but enough fluff sticks up so that it screws things up.
Rule #5: Magnagate Finding is inconsistent with round objects on another object.
Example: Doorknobs. Rule 1 usually comes into play if you can get it to work.
Rule #6: Magnagate Finding also works with ovals.
Example: Try the letter O on a Stop Sign.
Rule #7: No night owls allowed.
Example: All lights in a room as well as at night are generally yellow. You'll generally need LEDs or the sun's aid to get a decent enough variety of locales.
Rule #8: It's all worth it.
Example: And the earlier and more you use it, the better.
