Is there a calculator out there that would help me size the power supply? Or just take the motors and drives and add a percentage to it? Please excuse me. Kinda new at all of this.
Thank you everyone for your help.

Actually, you don't need to add a percentage, and a commercial manufacturer might even subtract a percentage.
You are very unlikely to ever run all the motors at full power. (well, not deliberately)

Somewhere I seem to remember reading something on the Gecko site saying that you could overate a power supply by 40% so a 10 amp power supply can handle 14 amps of stepper motors based on the motor specs. Thats what I've been working off.
