Chain Type Fencing

I am trying to install some metal chain fencing. Are there any good rfa. Files out there on the internet, or any solutions that anyone could suggest?

I find the best way to add fencing is to use a railing family. There are some standard sample railings included OOTB. Depending on your version of Revit and what country you live in, browse to C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\RVT 2014\Libraries\UK\System Families and open the GBRENU_Fences.rvt file. You can copy and paste a railing/fence into your project. There is a chainlink fence, but it has different posts to the ones in the picture you uploaded. But you can modify that yourself.

The actual chain link material will only show up when you have the "realistic" setting activated or on an actual render.
