In Footprint Expert dimension L for the length of the termination has a min and max dimension.

Some manufacture's only give a minimum dimension.

For example AVX is 0.3 minimum and TDK is 0.2 minimum.

I am not sure what to use for maximum in these cases.

I am thinking using 0.5 for a nominal value might make sense.

So for 0.3 min I would use 0.7 for max.

I hate when the component manufacturer only provides a "Minimum" dimension. 

What many people do is figure out the min/max average for every package size. 

0201, 0402, 0603, 0805, 1206, etc.
