I would import that DWG file into Revit. Then explode it. Model in place, using the DWG import... do a solid extrusion. I would just use the autopick drafting line tool with the use of the TAB key to highlight all those perforation as quickly as possible. That is the only way it will shop up in sections, elevations, and plan. If you were just going to do renderings... there is a way to do that creating a tiled JPEG... but this won't show up on your construction documents.

Quick model I did in Revit. You can make this custom family depending on how you want the panels to function.

You don't say how much of this you have and that is important.  If you have a lot of it, then don't model it because it will really bog down your model and substantially increase rendering times.  Instead, there is a pattern creator program that runs in Revit that will allow you to create this as a pattern file. http://tinyurl.com/25u8rvw

That will take care of elevations and 3D non-rendered views.  For rendered vies, you will need to create a material file.  There are examples of  materials with void patterns in your library.  You will have to create similar files for this.

Thanks so much for response, I could n't log into my profile, this is why I could get back right after. I have not tryed yet the link. I have 2 boxes representing tow level of the project they are on top of each other and pivoting from one corner with ~20 degree angle, each wings of the cubes are about 100 feet long and 10 feet height. I did try to extrude them from mass, but as you said this becomes a very large file and difficult to work with. I will try to use the link and I will post the result. appreciate your input
