Hello, I have a project in which 4 stepper motors are to run altogether at the exact same time, speed, direction, distance. There is distance between the axes of the 4 stepper motors, but they all are running in the same axis (z-direction). I was wondering if there is a way to connect all 4 stepper motors so that they only need to be controlled be 1 Step pin and 1 Dir pin? I do have some A4988 Drivers and I was thinking of getting a motor shield, but I don't know if this would help solve the problem.
If there is a solution to this problem, please let me know, otherwise I have to reevaluate my setup.
Thank you for any help you can provide!
