German 3D printer maker SLM Solutions has hired Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse to prepare a potential stock market listing, hoping to benefit from a sector boom, two sources familiar with the matter said. 3D printing technology, used to create solid objects from a digital model by laying down successive thin layers of material, has been around for more than 25 years but has only recently caught the imagination of investors and customers.
