A standard chain link fence seems to be just interlocking spirals of wire.
You could make 2 spirals, 1 for each "offset" and then just repeat those 2

If want to try to fake it, maybe either just do a criss-cross grid of cylinders,
or use an image map with an alpha channel.

What calculations do you think you need to do?

This was done with just spheres:
