The door frames seem much more bendy but everything else seems fine. And I am in Central Valley CA, and store the DF in the garage. It’s always hot out there.

I cannot imagine it takes dwarvenite long to cure. It was probably produced at least two months before you got it in your hands.

The addiction, well, yeah, you are doomed.
If cure time/age is not an issue then I fear they have changed the chemical formula from that used in KS I. "You just can't get Dwarvenite like you used to".

What we need in all future KS are diagonal X cross supports (at full base thickness) under each 2x2 or larger piece - I am seeing consistent warping on bases due to thinness of material compared to KS1&2. DF has hollowed around the magnet holders and now with a much thinner depth the dwarvenite is too flexible.

I don't think there is a cure for Dwarvenite.

I was doing a build yesterday and noticed that some of the pieces from DoD, specifically the doors, are much more flexible and prone to jamming than the original Dwarvenite doors. All my sets had a couple of days to equalize temperature so we can discount that. Also the door bases appear to be about the same thickness. How long does it take Dwarvenite to fully cure?

I've noticed the same thing Zach, but I am 100% positive that it is because the bricks on the wall are not as wide. The wall itself is thinner overall. The material is the same, IMO.

Passage walls are thicker. Diagonal walls also appear to be thicker. Same with Classic dungeon walls.

Hope this helps.

Nice video Zach.
Not having any of these yet, have you looked at the thickness of the 'thinnest' flat surface of the walls and the bottom's amount of cavity on underside of floor. They look thinner where the brick/stones are.
I think the material is the same, there's just less of it. ;)

EDIT - :idea: Weighing each piece might prove this. :?:
My thoughts too - if walls are same thickness then there might be an issue, if not then probably less torque resistance... IANAME*

Ok I did a video. Also, I think it's normal, but did anyone else's Dungeon Elevation Pillar not come with a plug at the bottom of the piece? It also makes the piece a little squishy due to the lack of structural support.
