A shaping apparatus 1 comprises an inkjet head 20 that forms one shaping layer by performing a plurality of times a main scanning operation in which ink droplets that will be cured according to light of a predetermined wavelength are ejected toward a shaping table 16 while reciprocating in a main scanning direction; a light source 22 that is provided in at least one position on the front side in the forward path direction or return path direction of the main scanning operation with respect to the inkjet head 20 and that radiates light onto the ink dots formed by the ink droplets; and a flattening unit 23 that flattens the upper surface of the ink dots, wherein a shaped object 30 is formed by layering the shaping layers. In the shaping apparatus 1, during at least one main scanning operation from among a plurality of main scanning operations, the ON/OFF state of the light source or illuminance thereof is controlled, so that a flattening roller 23 flattens the ink dots in the return movement while the ink dots are not yet completely cured.
