Truss in Revit is a loadable family that consists of sub elements such as top chord, bottom chord and web members. The family is a 2D profile assembly made from these elements. When you load the family into the project, you can assign which structural framing member(beam family) to use for each of these sub elements in the type properties of the truss. Each member can individually be selected and edited as well.
