I have a situation like below with several objects and I want to project them towards the plane X=0 while preventing objects from colliding. Basically each object goes as close as it can towards the plane without intersecting anything else.

Going from: before projecting

To: after projecting

Is there a way to do this quickly and easily for any number of objects?

    $\begingroup$ You can orient those objects along Z axis and set up a rigid body simulation (the big cube will be collision, the rest of them - active Rigid Bodies), then play it and wait until they are stuck on that surface. Use mesh bounds as rigid body options $\endgroup$
