Check the appointment confirmation email you will receive from them. I know mine from last year indicated all supporting documents were to be brought to the appointment, but I'm not sure if they will have changed that instruction. That said, they didn't actually look at any of them or do anything with them, so it didn't seem entirely necessary. However, the appointment is probably the last opportunity to upload anything before the application is submitted to UKVI, and I think they do a quick quality check to make sure what you uploaded was scanned at a reasonably acceptable quality so if they spot something and you have the document with you it becomes an easy thing to fix.
I'm just a guy on the Internet who immigrated to the UK. My opinions are based on my experience and interpretation of the immigration rules and should not be considered legal or immigration advice; your mileage may vary.

Do we need to have a print of all documents uploaded?

Some of my bank statements, employer letters, payslips are pdfs and have been uploaded to the portal.. Should I print them off now before the appointment?

Almost nobody has ever been asked where they haven't bought their add ones service. You maybe asked to supply these directly to UKVI.
