Is there any good way to represent something like this in skycad right now?

Well...

Thanks for posting on the forum.

Right now the best and easiest way to represent such a component (where all connection port are interconnected together) is by making one single large block where all connection are grouped through a 'Flow through' connection point group.  You would then use OPRs to spread a signal.

We understand it's not ideal, and are currently adding a feature in SkyCAD that would allow to represent one connection point at a time (so in a similar way a terminal from a terminal strip is represented, where all terminal symbols are spread around the project.)  We believe that will be the best way to handle you distribution block.

This will be in a new beta-version shortly.  We'll let you know once it is available.
