I am a beginner in 3D modeling so I thought I'd give my AC remote a try as a first model, so far so good but I got stuck when adding a material, when not using a subdivider it all sits good:
but when I enable the subdivider it only applies it to a small portion of it:
Is UV unwrapping the solution? I'm fairly new to this, have no idea how to approach this since I have many edge loops all over it to sharpen the subdivider, which leads me to another question, how do you deal with a mesh after adding edge loops after it? I have many vertices sitting on top of each other, which makes it nearly impossible to select the right connected ones..
Thanks in advance!
