Tetrahedral die

Permanent link to this puzzle: mscroggs.co.uk/puzzles/81
When a tetrahedral die is rolled, it will land with a point at the top: there is no upwards face on which the value of the roll can be printed. This is usually solved by printing three numbers on each face and the number which is at the bottom of the face is the value of the roll.
Is it possible to make a tetrahedral die with one number on each face such that the value of the roll can be calculated by adding up the three visible numbers? (the values of the four rolls must be 1, 2, 3 and 4)
