How can I make the solar shading device that looks like a screen as a family. An image of the screen is attached.

You best bet is to not actually model the screen. Model it as a solid panel
and use a material is a metal screen type material.

Jeff thanks for helping me out. I am not able to find metal screen material. Do you know where will I find Metal screen panel that I can apply to my solid panel????

You can duplicate an existing material in your project and then re-assign
the render appearance to a screen material. once you have the material
created in the project you can assign to the panel geometry. I posted a
video on how to create the material here. I used Revit Architecture but the
process is the same for Revit Structure.
