[Chimera-users] 3D printing a viral capsid

Hello

I’m trying to produce an STL file from a model I have built in Chimera but it comes out incredibly deformed.  I have created the model from a PDB file of a viral coat protein such that it is fully assembled into the proper capsid structure.  You can see the model I’ve created here:

Problem is, when I export to STL and open in Blender I get a squished unrecognizable “clump” looking thing and not a beautiful sphere.  Any help would be lovely!

Thanks!
Jeremiah
