    I want to operate 2 step motors together (the same steps) can i connect them
    in prallel
    to the same driver outputs?? (the driver can "give" the current to both

    Hello Dany,
    If the driver is able to drive both of them, why not? To the driver it
    will just look like a bigger motor.

    However, you risk the two running "out of step". If one misses a step
    and the other one doesn't they won't be mechanically in sync anymore in
    case that's what you wanted.

    Regards, Joerg
