Cool!

 

The easiest way to do the chainlink fence would probably be to use a decal. 

 

I'm thinking a quick way to model it might be to model a segment like this and copy/flip/attach to get one of the vertical wires. Then duplicate that and rotate it 180 along the y-axis to make the interlinking wire. Then duplicate that over and over again to make the fence.

It would be a ton of patches, though.

Check with David Simmons, itjustme on the forum. I think he did a chain line fence.

Nice fence, but be aware that that many patches will result in long rendering times and sooner or later in a slowdown of the programm when FindingPatches is active.

You can make a section of fence, then use an Action to place instances of that section where you want multiple times.
