Would it be relevant to find a formula wich generates them all with only two variables..?

(3,4,5) is generated by n=1, m=2, and (8,6,10) is generated by n=1, m=3, but (9,12,15) is not covered as 15 cannot be written as the sum of two squares.

It is trivial to extend the formula to cover all multiples, just add a common factor k to all three lengths. Then you get some triplets with more than one set of integers, but you cover all triplets at least once.
