Well, actually, there is no thickness of the truss in the tutorial, but I wanted mine to have some thickness.
So I extruded each surface according to each normal vector, but the end result didn’t seem like what I wanted.
One side of the truss was broken or overlapped in mine because of different extrusion directions.
To prevent this from happening, there is a way to take only one vector for every piece of truss,
but the result won’t be what we want when we actually need to build it.

I guess there is a way to solve this problem by scripting stuff, but I am not there yet…
