It might be easier to interpret results obtained by mapping the stresses to a pattern of construction lines (rather than surfaces). The lines could be aligned with the z axis and extend from the bottom to the top of the 5 mm high component. The creation of either lines ar surfaces, the mapping of results onto them and the display of these results can be automated with an APDL command object, but I don't know if it would be easier for you to create such a command object than it would be to perform this post processing operation manually in the Mechanical GUI (that would depend on your comfort with/knowledge of APDL).

Multiple paths/surfaces may be created by embedding the commands in do loops (*DO command).
