Will the DAD tool work on the NCV3 sprinters?

No.

DAD T1N is K-line. NCV3 models use CAN bus.

So I’m finally going to get an ncv3 sprinter. What diagnostic tool is the best?

There is a "scanners" sub-forum: https://sprinter-source.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=205

"Best" usually has some (unspoken?) limits by the buyer... absolutely super-best is probably $20,000. (with annual fee on top, ask Dennis)

For us kick-the-tires crowds, there are a bunch of sub-$500 systems, each offering benefits and shortcomings.

I don't have an NCV3, so i can only mention what appear to be the three leading contenders:
Chinese(eBay)-sourced MB Star/Xentry cloned systems (most comprehensive, includes service 'manuals')
Autel MD802 or 808
iCarSoft

..chase down the various threads in the sub-forum for user reports

good luck
