what I trying to do??

there is a picture to understand. (sorry, I m not Roy.)


 this picture  is of course the simple probleme. my problem is in 3D (so
with 3D_box) , and there are 500 box and lots of spring, all box are put in
the scene randomly.

this picture is The initial scene , there are spring with different forces.
after click on a button,  I wanna the stable system, what I mean is  that


I looked for spring in ode and I did'nt found that, so I applied force and
runned the system, and when the globalForce of the object is in his minimal,
so I stop the simulation.

is enougth clear??

thank a lot for your help.

othe thing, is you didn't see again (I m sure) I m not a English man ,
