ballasts not attaching

Im trying to create a machine only with ballasts. However I find a lot of times that ballasts dont attach to each other. Here an example:

All of these ballasts are supposed to be attached. Here is without armor:

You could say that there is a lot of weight. Well, there isnt that much but even if it was, the structure already deattached when i didnt even put the armor and it was just structure and wheels.
that could be true and a big problem. not sure if intended or not, but if intended then the ballast model is very confusing since it has "attach" points in all 6 faces.
I just didnt know that ballasts worked like that. Now that I know it I can "use" it.

The problem as I said, is that they have attachment points in all 6 faces and it would seem that it would attach to each face, like wooden blocks do.

I dont know if the behavior is intended or not but if its they should rework the ballast model to not mislead people.

Thanks for the analysis guys, I'll pass this along and find out if they are intended to work in this way and if it is perhaps we can make it a bit more intuitive.
