Is there living space above the garage? How many walls are shared with the garage? Is the garage door insulated?

comment Protect from 3D Printer fumes
Seems to me that if you don't want to breath it, neither would the people outside the window. If the fumes are toxic, or hazardous in any way, you'll want to exhaust them in an approved manner. If you're going to blow it outside untreated, I'd at least exhaust out the roof. That should at least keep it away from other people.

comment Do building codes allow smaller nails when using gun instead of manually hammering?
@PhilEsra That sounds like International Building Code (IBC). If it's a residential application, International Residential Code (IRC) might be what's used instead.
