To celebrate the release of another song from the upcoming Rush album Clockwork Angels two days from now, I decided to model the clock shown in the teaser trailer (see links below). This is the outer ring that you could mount on a CD-sized clock.

I designed it in Google Sketchup, and made a mistake that I eventually decided I like, so I'm sticking with it - instead of the base being solid as originally designed, slicing subtracted the symbols from the base. The result is that the bottom of the base has a negative of the symbols, and then the symbols are still printed on top. I actually like it.

Mine was printed with clear PLA so you can't really make out the symbols that well without good lighting, but hopefully it looks better printed with an opaque plastic.

Sadly I am in no way connected with Rush - I'm just an insanely devoted fan. :)

Update: Now that the song is out, here's the official lyrics video:

RUSH - "Headlong Flight" - Official Lyric Video


First, start playing your favorite Rush album (if you're like me and your favorite Rush album is whichever Rush album is playing, then try to randomly pick one). Print, attach to a CD-based clock if you have one lying around, and enjoy.

Bonus geek step: Appreciate that the thingiverse id for this item (21555) is coincidentally pretty damned cool.. the first two digits are from 2112, and the last three (555) are most often associated with the 555 timer chip (get it? time? clock? is this thing on?)

Bassist and life-long Geddy fan here.

I met the boys backstage during the Signals tour.  They were huddled around a TV watching their beloved Expos play baseball.

Right after playing an amazing show, to a sold-out crowd of 18,000... they're watching baseball.

After about 15 minutes, they came out for the meet n greet... NICEST GUYS EVER.
I'll be printing this tonight  ;-)

Big Rush Fan here too. Still one of my favorite bands to see Live. Discovered them as I'm a drummer (and now guitar player) so I have several members of Rush to look up to. :)

We're on the train to Bangkok aboard the Tailand Express!
