No I did not add them...
Also what is the purpose of ground planes?

Helps keep EMI noise down, may help with cooling.

Yes, interesting red/green LEDs, just wondering how bright they will be when multiplexed.

They are hevally diffused, and even w/ that, @ 100% duty @ 5v, one could be used as a good flashlight...

You want some pics of them on 5v0 @ 10% & 100% duty?

Sure, post one.
I found for th 4-5,000mCD LEDs I usedm, just 2-3mA of current, even while multiplexed at 800 Hz, was really bright!

Also I wanted to mention this:

The 'cube' is actually wired as 8 separate bi-color LED matrices...
Each 'layer' on a single matrix has only 8 bi-color LEDs, and same can be said for the columns.

I wonder if that fact could be used to make the LEDs brighter?

Nope - the multiplexing of the Holtek driver will be the limiting factor.

Need more LEDs with more mcd/20mA to be brighter.

Or, "overdrive" the LEDs if it can be determined the Holtek part turns on each one for the current/pulse-time allowed by the LEDs.
Be a shame to build it all up and then blow them out by accident.
