Hi Hossam,

You can add materials directly to the text file "C:\DIVA\Daylight\material.rad".  Once saved, the new material(s) will appear in the dropdown of any new material component you add to the canvas (or to all existing material components once you restart Rhino).

You can use the existing basic material types in the file (metal, plastic, glass) as a template for creating new ones.  For more info look here: http://diva4rhino.com/user-guide/rhino/custom-radiance-materials

Ah, that kind of material.  You can add new EnergyPlus materials and assemblies to the file: "C:\DIVA\Thermal\Shared\IDF_components\01_user_custom_construction.idf"

See the "01_construction_assemblies.idf" file for examples of existing materials, and the EnergyPlus inputoutput guide for further reference.
