Sum Star

Here’s a type that came together in my notebooks back in October 2016.  It’s nearest rectangular precedent is Gapped Kakuro by Serkan Yürekli. A puzzle of this type will be featured today on Grandmaster Puzzles.

Rules

Fill cells with numbers and shade all remaining cells such that:

  1. Each dodecagon contains the numbers 1-9 exactly once.
  2. Numbers in cells sharing a vertex with a black triangle add up to the indicated sum without repeating.
  3. A shaded cell cannot share an edge with another shaded cell.
