Laser filament sensor geometry

I'm designing a block to hold my laser filament sensor. I was reading the wiki and noticed they were mentioning different geometries for the back plate, and some draft angle for the opening where the laser shoots down.
Here's what I cad'd up.
Any input on it? It's a 15 degree draft angle and there's a small pyramid on the bottom to get rid of stray IR light. The filament edge is about 9mm away from the sensor. I have the filament path enlarged because I am using screw in bowden connectors. I don't have any black filament handy, but I'm printing it with orange to see if it works at all.
Moved to the filament monitor category.
Not sure about the geometry myself, but worth printing and testing anyway.
