Marked, as I have a similar need, but haven't found any truly automated solution.  Rather, a series of batch files or utilities that requires someone to be at least logged in (even if left logged on overnight), or to start the process, or oddly costs a lot of money. -which for the life of me, I could not get working, but everyone says was so great and easy...

Foxit PDF reader will let you print from a command line. Create a task to run the following command at 3am:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader\Foxit Reader.exe" /t filename.pdf "printer_name"
