I can’t find very much info on this topic.
I have a cheap HF dust collector and basically all of my tools except the Table saw along one wall.
By my way of thinking, you would achieve the maximum amount of suction at each tool by running the pipe along the ground at about the same level as the motor and impeller housing, which works well for my layout, however seeing everyone else with a similar setup running theirs along the ceiling or just above counter height makes me think I might be missing something. It would be equally easy for me to run ceiling, counter or floor level setups so I would like to go with the best way.
The only thing I can think is maybe larger chips would not be sucked upward to the ceiling before it reaches the impeller. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
