The storage ring for the Muon g-2 experiment is composed of twelve custom vacuum chambers designed to interface with tracking and calorimeter detectors. The irregular shape and complexity of the chamber design made implementing these chambers in a GEANT simulation with native solids difficult. Instead, we have developed a solution that uses the CADMesh libraries to convert STL files from 3D engineering models into tessellated solids. This method reduces design time, improves accuracy and allows for quick updates to the experimental geometry. Details about development and implementation will be discussed.
