You will need support but every half decent printer can print it.
Question remains of the size and print resolution though.
Keep in mind that fine details will require a fine nozzle to be printed properly.

If a resin or powder based printer is used no support is required but those printers are usually a bit over the price tag that one would have on a hobby machine.
