fix nve/limit for a polymer

Dear all,

I have an initial polymer structure with overlapping atoms and was wondering whether it is a good idea to use fix nve/limit 0.01 with the following in order to push the atoms apart:

pair_style soft 1.12
pair_coeff 1 1 5 1
bond_coeff 1 30 15 0.1 1

and after some time to go to the parameters that are needed for my simulation?

Thank you very much for your time!

With best wishes,
Anna

You can try it - you can also just do an energy
minimization to push off.
