 Ring of triangles II (Posted on 2016-03-10)
As in Ring of triangles I, ABCDEF is a hexagon and O is an interior point. Triangles ABO, CDO, EFO are is equilateral. Their respective side lengths are different integers with no common divisor. (They are also not 4,3,7 because that was part I.)

BC, DE, and FA are also integer lengths.

Find a set of lengths {AB,BC,CD,DE,EF,FA} for which this is possible.

Note: There are sides of the hexagon that can be the same.

(In reply to computer solution by Charlie)

So that the found sides do not merely reiterate those of the given triangles for any specific set of AB, CD and EF, the following checks that of BC, DE and FA, at least one differs from any in the first (given) set.

But also, I realize I was being too restrictive on the GCD requirement. I had required that no two of AB, CD, EF shared a common factor. The revised program weeds out only those where a common factor is shared among all three of the equilateral triangle side lengths.
