I downloaded a model that I believe was intended to be a 3D printed movable figure. I setup constraints using A2Plus workbench to tie the pieces together and can change the angles.

You can download the FreeCAD file here: https://grabcad.com/library/configurable-driver-1

Would it be possible to upload the file to a hoster where no registration is necessary?

A suggestion: Make human
Last time I used it I had to utilize Blender to scale the model and reduce the node count. A bit fiddly, but worked for my purpose.
