I use a Dell XPS 15 9560 with Integrated intel + GTX 1050. I've learn not to mess with other NVIDIA driver rather than what appears available in AppCenter. My recommendation to you would be the following:
1) Uninstall any NVIDIA thingy you might have in your system.
2) Completely update elementaryOS to the latest.
3) Check which Kernel version you're running (doing 'uname -r' from a terminal does the trick).
-At this point make sure you're running the latest curated kernel for eOS which is 5.xxxx (I run a custom 5.3.13 like a charm but let's do this the simple way).
If you're running the latest elementary+5.x kernel then:
4) Install the latest nvidia driver available from AppCenter (Currently I'm running 435.21 with zero issues).
I know you mention something about Autodesk and AppCenter's NVidia driver, but I'm betting money on a kernel/driver issue. If done this way, it should give you what you need (hopefully).
let me know! I'll try to run Maya myself to see if I have any issues or not.
