My problem is that I have made a light guide to transfer the light from 5
leds to the front panel of a box. In this array the light leaks a lot from
one light guide to the other. I tried to fix this by putting opaque
material all around the guides but this approach reduced the intensity a

So I would like to do some simulations of what would happen if I use a
round piece of plastic instead of a guide made out of polygons. It would
also be nice to see if I could reduce cross-talking by forming some weird
angles from the connecting plastic pieces.
