Thanks Edward

Not an easy task to do in Game Maker because you would need to generate the triangles in both the initial and rotated views, that's heavy trig.

Turtle Art may be able to generate rotated views of triangles by starting at a different initial heading, I'll think about it. 

May be easier in Etoys because it could handle the rotations of triangle objects. I think Scratch could handle the rotations too.
