Never at a loss for power as any engineer I would make a current list. That assumes every coil of every motor is powered and multiply it by1.30 that is a standard 30% extra capacity for any unexpected reason.

Next plan on using a large diameter short length power wire pair or better add a large filter capacitor or even better make a 4 wire supply that senses the voltage at the motor and smartly adjusts to maintain the 2.4VDC no matter what your driver does..

Go by the datasheet ;)
And to run a stepper motor you need more than just a power supply, please check Google first on how they are controlled if you need more info.
