Default the draft

Responsible dust particles shouldn't need to be drafted, down or otherwise. They should enlist.

A couple of (real) thoughts.

First, I think you'll want the combined area of the inlet holes to be equal to, but not greater than the area of the vac connection. You don't want to starve the air flow, but you want air (and dust) coming from the entire surface, not just the holes near the vac inlet.

Second, assuming a shallow-box design with the vac inlet at the side or back, I'd suggest angled panels around the perimeter inside the box. That would avoid vortices forming in the otherwise square corners that would rob suction.
