Abstract: Disclosed are a 3D scanning apparatus and a 3D scanning method. The 3D scanning apparatus includes a turntable which is rotatable at 360 degrees about a rotating shaft so that the target object is rotated; a 3D scanner configured to obtain 3D scan data of the target object by scanning the target object on the turntable; and a controller configured to control a rotating operation of the turntable and a scanning operation of the 3D scanner so as to rotate the turntable 360 at degrees, operate the 3D scanner to scan the target object at each of rotation angles of the turntable, and additionally measure the non-measured portion by distinguishing a non-measured portion of the target object.
