Hi Paul

We regularly cut mesh panels and tend to treat the material as if it's solid sheet from a cutting speed point of view. If there is more material than holes we use capacitive sensing; if there's more holes than material we use fixed height for the focus.

We've cut various mesh ranging from 2mm Mild Steel, to 12mm stainless, and with various hole patterns / diameters, and never had any issues.

I hope this helps.

Same here, as Martin's comments. It's quite easy.
