Rendered Perforations

I am looking to render some datacenter cabinet assemblies. These have large doors with very fine perforations. Obviously there is no way in SolidWorks that it would make sense to model each perforate as it would become a beast.


I have tried numerous things over the years to get these to render ok, I normally found that the cosmetic hole pattern realview property worked best. But it is hardly ideal, as I can only attach a basic color to the non-transparent section.


So I am basically just wondering if anyone has had any better success doing anything different.
