Monte Carlo simulations in design of neutron monitors for fusion experimental devices play an important role to evaluate the influence of scattering from various structures and to correct differences between neutron energies from calibration source and fusion plasma. We have developed an automated input file generation code based on finely segmented helical coil approximation. In this paper, we study the optimal number of divisions of segmented geometry from viewpoints of simulation precision and required calculation time. We conclude that results with more than 360 divisions saturate into the result with fully fine simulation. And we evaluate influence of neutron scattering from a miniature train, a railroad and supporting structures used in in-situ calibration experiments at LHD.
