Number of Fiber to LED

Does anyone know the general max or optimal number of size/dimensions of LEDs to a 3mm and 5mm LED(30degree viewing angle)?

I could not find any reference through google. You may just have to experiment.

I haven't had a chance to do any electrics yet so I maygive you a wrong answer.
When you wrap the LED with insulation tape keep the tape parallel to the sides as you wrap the fibres to it. Try not to go outside of this parameter as the light fade would start to show in the windows outputs. It maybe with the larger LED's that you can go a bit more but this would be a safe guide for consistency. Maybe not directly on to the LED give it a centimetre air between them.
