    If your looking to just do a rendering I simply apply a texture image to the face.

    Or if you model the holes, then you can simply suppress them to speed up your computer perforamce and then unsurpress when you need them.

    There is DOTS.TIF file in Program Files>IronCAD>2015>Images that you may use to simulate it. Just adjust it on settings when paint it on the surface.
