Hi,
I have not yet read any notification of the fact that in stead of inside trisectors also outside trisectors can be used. The equilateral triangle you get from the outside trisectors and the one you get from the inside trisectors are reflections of each other over the circumcenter.
Best regards, Floor van Lamoen.
