COMMENTS

a(n) is also the number of grid points that are covered after nth stage by an polyedge as the toothpick structure of A139250, but with toothpicks of length 6.

FORMULA

a(n) = A147614(n)+4*A139250(n) = A160420(n)+2*A139250(n) since each toothpick covers exactly four more grid points than the corresponding toothpick in A147614.
