I'm working with Solidworks 2014-2015 student edition, and I'm doing my final project.
I need to build a kind of a grater, and I'm having a hard time figuring out how to do those tiny holes that allow the grating process to be done . I saw that it should be done via Forming tools (under Sheet tab), but I can't find a built-in hole for that exact purpose, so I was wondering if I can find a download of it or to get instructions of how to get it done.
I'm attaching the following YouTube link, demonstrating exactly what I need (check 0:20 and on): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkvhZXKHHt0
Add your embossing tool
Design library in the Embossed file

First, thank you for your answer.
Unfortunately, I don't see how that Puncher is what I need - it's nicely shaped but it won't serve as a grater.
Plus, I wish you sent that word file in English :)
Primarily, you create a forming tool.
Your render part doesn't work... Solid can't load it. And I spent like an hour to told me to do within the doc file and upon saving the new shape as a new forming tool and trying to drag it to my prime shape, Solid keeps crashing, saying that an "unknown problem was encountered". I'm about to give up :(
