Bending Checkered Plates

I wonder if there is an easy way to design checkered plates in SolidWorks and when it comes to bending those what angle deviations you are experiencing?

Just use a texture. You don't want to actually model in the pattern, it'll take too many resources to display it, and when you bend checkered plate it bends just like regular sheet metal of the same thickness and material. Any difference in the two end up being negligible.
