Printed this out today and sad to say, I didn't have much luck. The thin upright piece snapped while trying to clean out the support material. I was thinking of an alternative method for this. If removed the clip from the bracket, it could be printed on it's side without support. Add a tab on one end that would lay on top of the bracket and it could then be glued into position. I was trying to do something like that by importing the STL into OpenSCAD but unfortunately, there is something about the STL that causes CGAL to crash when rendering it after it has been clipped. I have had this problem with other STL files.

I'm sorry it didn't print well for you. I am in the process of redoing this one a bit. I have made a new clip that has a 5mm high x 3mm wide rail along the edge. I will draw out a new bracket to go with it. Maybe with a more flexible design, the rail can be used to hang different things from the side. I am uploading the new clip now.

I knew it was going to be problematic for me. I have not had much luck with tall structures printed this way so you only have the layer adhesion for strength. I'll give your new one a try. I have another RPi case that uses screws that I was going to try making a bracket for to attach with the clip. On the plus side, the clip fits perfectly. :)

Well I'm glad the clip part works! I have just updated everything to the 2 piece design now. I have also uploaded the Pi saddle clamp. It fits mine well with only a single clip. I like this set up much better.
