Example:

# Let's create two materials typically used for steel stud partition
# walls with gypsum lining.
gypsum = ifcopenshell.api.run("material.add_material", model, name="PB01", category="gypsum")
steel = ifcopenshell.api.run("material.add_material", model, name="ST01", category="steel")

# Create a material layer set to contain our layers.
material_set = ifcopenshell.api.run("material.add_material_set", model,
    name="GYP-ST-GYP", set_type="IfcMaterialLayerSet")

# Now let's use those materials as three layers in our set, such
# that the steel studs are sandwiched by the gypsum. Let's imagine
# we're setting the layer thickness in millimeters.
layer = ifcopenshell.api.run("material.add_layer", model, layer_set=material_set, material=gypsum)
ifcopenshell.api.run("material.edit_layer", model, layer=layer, attributes={"LayerThickness": 13})
layer = ifcopenshell.api.run("material.add_layer", model, layer_set=material_set, material=steel)
ifcopenshell.api.run("material.edit_layer", model, layer=layer, attributes={"LayerThickness": 92})
layer = ifcopenshell.api.run("material.add_layer", model, layer_set=material_set, material=gypsum)
ifcopenshell.api.run("material.edit_layer", model, layer=layer, attributes={"LayerThickness": 13})
