"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.

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"
