Restatement of the definition: A polydrafter is a polygon formed by joining 306090 triangles, according to the following rules:
(a) Two triangles may be joined along their short legs, with their right angles touching;
(b) Two triangles may be joined along their long legs, with their right angles touching;
(c) Two triangles may be joined along their hypotenuses, in either direction;
(d) The short leg of triangle 1 may be joined to half of the hypotenuse of triangle 2, with the right angle of triangle 1 touching the midpoint of the hypotenuse of triangle 2.

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 14 because there are 14 tridafters. The second Vicher link shows various arrangements of them.
