How To Roll Sheet Metal with Perforated Pattern?

AuroraRonAuroraRon Member Posts: 102 PRO
Anyone know how to do a pattern on sheet metal that is not a flange, its a roll or some other form?
 
I understand how to do a pattern on a solid and extrude it but, how about doing the same on sheet metal?
The extrusion needs to done on the flat surface not on a sold.

Here is an example

    I see your example, thank you. That will do it.
    Do these features scripts have any documentation / instructions ?

    if you make hexagonal pattern on the flat sketch, then you just need to map it on the cylinder surface using Sketch Wrapper FS with "Split face" option and then delete those faces with "leave open" option and then convert the surface to sheet metal part.
