This model is very detailed and will require support material to print properly. I have also made it available on Shapeways for the cost of the print (at no markup). The model stands nicely on its side.

This structure was published in Nature Chemistry 2010 September; 2(9): 772–779., and the paper is freely available here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2928159/
