      I'd agree 100% with Ben here.
      I switched to the thinner K95(?) quite a while ago for the same reason!

      The one thing that jumped out at me in your problem description for printing very fine details was two words: High Relief. 

      We've battled with high relief material before only finding a solution in moving to a low relief material. You are battling trying to hold a fine detail high atop a thick subsurface. Decrease the height of that subsurface by moving to a thinner plate material and you gain some dimensional stability. You can still print low relief plate with your high relief base, just add a layer of press board behind your base to build up the height.
