Haven't done the solving yet (not sure if I will!) but here's one with all-integers: areaBCD = 290304 BD = 624 BC = 960 CD = 1008 AB = AC = AD = 520 FH = 156 (AF = 260) EI = 96 (AE = 104) GJ = 63 (AG = 65) In case you wanted to "play" with an integer case

The inradius of triangle ABM = 63 The inradius of triangle ACM = 96 The inradius of triangle BCM = 156 Calculate sides of triangle ABC (same as yours, right?) I think this'll work: Apply rs = Area = sqrt(s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c)) to triangles ABM, ACM, BCM. Let AM = BM = CM = R. AB = 2 R sin(C) , BC = 2 R sin(A), AC = 2 R sin(B) R sin(C)cos(C) / (1 + sin(C)) = 63 R sin(B)cos(B) / (1 + sin (B)) = 96 R sin(A)cos(A) / (1 + sin(A)) = 156 A + B + C = pi. 4 equations, 4 unknowns: should be ok, right? Try it...

i don't see how you get to those
and i don't see how $\frac {a}{sin(A)}= \frac {b}{sin(B)} = \frac {c}{sin(C)} = 2R$ can be proven
but i'll ask that in a separate post

Angles are: A = 36.869897.... , B = 67.380135.... , C = 75.749967.... And R = 520. 520 * sin(75.749967) * cos(75.749967) / [1 + sin(75.749967)] = 63 520 * sin(67.380135) * cos(67.380135) / [1 + sin(67.380135)] = 96 520 * sin(36.869897) * cos(36.869897) / [1 + sin(36.869897)] = 156
