Creating a strainer

Hi. I’m new to rhino and I’m trying to create a strainer (like this http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/images/products/idealisk-strainer__23790_PE099056_S4.JPG) but I have no idea how to create this metal net. Can anyone explain it to me? What tools I have to use?

Is this just for visualization or will this be 3D printed?
If the former, it might suffice to make a simple surface and put a texture on it.

Well it’s just for visualization so texture would be enough. Altough I’m still curious how to do that net for future projects.

The easy way would be to make that surface, extract lots of isocurves in both directions and pipe those.
