How do I make an object which is a grid with rounded corners as seen in the photo below?

The rounded corners are big and cut through multiple of the squares inside the grid.

drawing of grid with rounded corners

I tried by creating a plane then adding the subdivision modifier, then adding the wireframe modifier, but when I went to round the corners with Ctrl + Shift + B it messed up the wires.

I then tried by converting it to a mesh, but that only allowed me to round corners on one square within the grid.

  • $\begingroup$ I'm not by my pc so I can't try it, but have you tried creating the outline you want, then using grid fill? I'm not sure if the corners will come out right, though. $\endgroup$ Jul 23 '21 at 16:49

You can create a plane, round its corners with a bevel, create a second plane (same size), subdivide it, delete its faces, switch to top view, select the grid, shift select the first plane, go into Edit mode, then Mesh > Knife Project and it will cut the grid on the plane. Give some corrections:
