The term "strut" means "support" as in the short piece of metal attached diagonally on an aircraft wing to the body for support during flight.
In Jmol this is a generally short bond-like piece that is thick enough to support a section of a protein in a plastic model created using rapid prototyping.

I see this as a term that needs translation:

†#: org/jmol/script/
msgid "{0} struts added"

Can you tell me what are these "struts"? The standard dictionaries do
not help me.

it is better to take what answer we get.
