In SolidWorks do we have privilege to build chekered plates.
I have got the options in rendering but we need solid modelling.
A workaround could be to create a flat part, then create a square sketch of the desired size. This could be cut-extruded a few thousandths of an inch and linear-patterned to give the appearance of the checkered plate. The problem is that referenced this pertaining to sheet metal. I doubt that you could then bend that pattern as you may want to in sheetmetal.
Any specific reason of putting them as you won't be able to flatten them.In case you still want to have them on drawing, show them on some area of the part but not all.
Another way to do this is to use the split-line feature. Then add appearances to the different areas. See attached file.
Thanks for your reply Ronan
But I need to model the feature or any standard feature available in SolidWorks.
Can you help me out to make a solid model out of this. As the imag attached by Mr. Deepak.
Use the forming tool to create ur checkered plate.
I dont find any attachment option to attach the forming tool & my sheetmetal part.
So attaching the picture only. Though the model are not perfect. you can refine them and create ur own type of formint tool.

The solution is good but you won't be able to flatten them and as Jeff said, you won't be ale to bend them. These are good as long as you need them on flat surface.
Yeah that's a point. As long as the bending line not come over forming areas, it will work...................
I am doing something similar. I don't need a flat pattern, but I need the actual model features to do some flow/thermal analysis.
