Trigem Compatibility

A trigem is a plane polyform whose three cells are gems—figures formed by dividing a regular hexagon into thirds using lines from the center to the midpoints of the sides. A gem is one of the two dikites. You can see more about polygems at Abaroth's Polygem Page.

Two or more polyforms are compatible if there is a polyform that each can tile. Here are the minimal known compatibilities for trigems. Most were found by Abaroth. Please write if you find a smaller solution or solve an unsolved case.
