Understanding human pose is a fundamental component of many forms of art, including sculpture, painting, drawing, and animation. Software that can accurately capture and represent the human pose is essential for creating realistic and expressive works of both traditional and digital art. However, to the best of our knowledge, there is currently no open-source code available for deep learning-based pose estimation from static 3D data. While there exist many "classical" pre-deep learning methods for this task, they have a significant drawback: they are not differentiable, making them difficult to incorporate into subsequent deep learning pipelines. We put special emphasis on integration with deep learning pipelines since they are the cornerstone of modern creative systems. In this work, we propose and implement two methods for human pose estimation based on neural networks. The first method leverages part segmentation to classify the body part of each point and estimates the body joints based on neighboring parts. The second method estimates joints directly from point clouds. Our code will be made available on GitHub.
