In this paper, tensegrity structures were formulated on truss by the conventional rolled steel members (RS) namely Type 1 truss and by pipe sections namely Type 2 truss. The Type 1 and Type 2 truss structures was modeled and analyzed using software’s (ANSYS and STAADPRO packages). For Type 2 truss, tensegrity model was attained with the self-equilibrium state at various load cases. The members of the truss was designed by IS: 800-1984 and 2007 methods and compared based on utility ratio. The detailing of Type 1 and 2 trusses were done by TEKLA software. The nodal deflection and member stresses were compared and tabulated by ANSYS and STAADPRO software’s.
