How to make tangent cuts to a curved solid

I want to model the microphone grid of the PSEye camera (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/80/PlayStation-Eye.png). It's rounded box grid and I cant get any solidoworkd that I know to make the trick. The warp says it cant work with spherical faces and deform is not giving the final face as it is...I appreciate all the help!

Edit:

I tried to use wrap, but it says it cant wrap around toroidal or shperical faces

Hi !
If only rendering is necessary , basic SW material such as perforated rubber can make the job. Arrange color, resize map scale and it will be done.

Hi
Instead of making real holes on the surfaces , why don't try to make a shell then apply a perforated material just for rendering.
The part is embossed perforated sheet metal , so I don't think SW be able to create this type of part , Logopress might be ?
Good Luck !
