Brilliant!

I'm sure Pythagoras would have happily given you his shoes just for the beauty of that construction.

Hi benice;

Very, very pretty.

I am sure you have noticed that G has gone 3D!

I am the almighty Pythagoras! Give me back my shoes. Yes, thank you, they are very pretty indeed.

Hi;

For some reason that reminds me of Zero Mostel.

Hi bobbym,

Somewhat better, but not 100%. Yes, he did look like that but he had dark hair.

Any hints about this?

Hi Agnishom;

The 3, 4, 5 aspect of the triangle is a little unusual.

Hi;

Makes it more difficult to compute and to even program. Also I know the answer for an equilateral triangle.

An equilateral triangle is never right angled

Hi Agnoshom;

That is the problem, you do not form an equilaterla triangle, they want a proportion of 3:4:5 for each triangle. But I have been making progress with the problem.

Sorry, I had been a little busy.

How do you begin attacking the problem?

Hi Agnishom;

With experimental mathematics of course! That means playing with geogebra. But since I am only half done I can not brag about anything. This idea may not work!
