Manually creating splices in SW Electrical 2018

I've poked around online and have seen one other question asked about this with no responses, so I will try again. I am a new user with SW Electrical Schematic and the 3d add-in. I am in the wire harness world currently dealing with large automotive type harnesses that contain large amounts of splices containing multiple wire up to 8 in some cases. I have modeled a 3d splice with 1 connection point going in and 8 going out. My issue is when I route harnesses, the splices are only being considered at terminal 1 in the route and ignoring the other terminals. I have all my splices defined in my schematic and all cable cores associated and added to the harness. It is possible that I have my circuit and terminals not defined correctly. Another issue; I am not an electrical guy, so please go easy on me.

I have the symbols set up as passing type with terminals. I also ran a rules check with no errors. I have attached several pictures with hopes someone can lend some assistance. Thanks in advance. (by the way, I know when I upgrade to 2019 or higher, I will get some better tools to use with splices. For now this is what I am stuck with ) I am sure some of you experts will spot the issue right away.
