Hi all,
In my circuit I am having a capacitor (Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors MLCC - SMD/SMT CKG 2220 250V 3.3uF X7T 20% T: 5mm) with part no: CKG57NX7T2E335M500JH. I would like to know, if it is possible to use the Standard value of capacitor(2220_5650_metric_handsolder) in the kicad library as footprint.

The short answer is that it depends. If the component will sit on the pads and the solder will flow then you can use it. Otherwise you need to find an alternative. Only you can make that determination.
