COMMENTS

Primitive means that gcd(a,b,c) = 1.

The trirectangular tetrahedron (0, a=a(n), b=A031174(n), c=A031175(n)) has three right triangles with area divisible by 6 = 2*3 each and a volume divisible by 15840 = 2^5*3^2*5*11. The biquadratic term b^2*c^2 + a^2*(b^2 + c^2) is divisible by 144 = 2^4*3^2. Also gcd(b + c, c + a, a + b) = 1. - Ralf Steiner, Nov 22 2017

There are some longest edges a which occur multiple times, such as a(31) = a(32)) = 23760. - Ralf Steiner, Jan 07 2018

A trirectangular tetrahedron is never a perfect body (in the sense of Wyss) because it always has an irrational area of the base (a,b,c) whose value is half of the length of the space-diagonal of the related cuboid (b*c, c*a, a*b). The trirectangular bipyramid (6 faces, 9 edges, 5 vertices) built from these trirectangular tetrahedrons and the related left-handed ones connected on their bases have rational numbers for volume, face areas and edge lengths, but again an irrational value for the length of the space-diagonal which is a rational part of the length of the space-diagonal of the related cuboid (b*c, c*a, a*b). - Ralf Steiner, Jan 14 2018
