Rafters butting up to rafters although showing theyʻre intersecting.

Im having difficulties figuring out why this keeps happening. I am trying to build some ladder soffits for the extension of the eave. The distance for all of those rafters in the ladder are all the same however some of them seem to display as intersecting with the perpendicular main rafter. They are the same material and Iʻve tried to flip around with the junction order already in selection settings.  

Also, I have a bonus question! How do you make multiple copies at one consistent angle...? 

I appreciate your help!  THANK YOU

Change the Intersection Group of your rafter layer to Zero. This will prevent any of the elements in that layer from intersecting. The same can be done with your stud framing layer.

You must be using different building materials with different strengths?
