    Are these cracks that appear after you apply force or is it just under extrusion in certain areas?

    Which brand of filament are you using?

    Some time ago I tried some old cheap filament I had left and I had the same problem. It was clearly the bad quality filament that was stored in bad conditions. I partially fixed the problem printing slower and using smaller layer heights (0.1mm normally). You can also play with higher temps, but that will cause some stringing and problems with overhangs depending on the model you're trying to print.
