Quick Stepper motor questions

I have 2 quick questions about the stepper motors:

1. My X-axis motor is a little squeaky lately. Am I able to grease or oil it?

#2 I added dampeners to my x and y axis motors; am I able to add one to the extruder motor? Would that help at all?

Setting in S3D to raise/lower bed on startup?

I know I have read it before, but cannot for the life of me find it

I read you get the bed close to the nozzle, then use a setting in S3d to fine tune it

Which setting is that?

Cheap/Free software to "thicken" dxf files

My daughter is 14 years old, and an amazing artist

I have taught here how to make dxf files from here sketches, etc, but then I have to thicken them for her to print (I use Solidworks)

Is there a free or cheap program I can get for her, that she could use to make here own 3d prints?
