Block placement distance is not enough

I'm trying to place this large atmo thruster in cockpit build mode. But I can't place it. I need to be close to the attachment point but when I'm close to it, I'm becoming inside of the block I want to place. So it doesn't allow me to place. See screenshots.

This has been an issue for a while with large blocks like Refineries, and Large Thrusters. It's worse for larger modded blocks like my 2x7x12 block refineries. The Placement Range should be based on the largest single dimension of the block being placed plus a X distance, not just a fixed range.
