A group of 100 objects would be counted as 100 objects, exactly the same as if those objects were not grouped.
If each column is made up of a base, a column, and a capital as separate objects then you'd have 3 objects per column and 300 objects for the 100 columns.
If you make a tree with the tree machine which has 250 leaves, that tree is somewhere around 260 objects depending on the trunk you selected.
DesignWorkshop Classic is limited to 1000 Objects per model. Which you could encounter rather quickly with these modeling techniques.
DesignWorkshop Classic is a very capable modeler. You can go a long way with 1,000 objects. The Maybeck Studio model (included with the DW Lite download and on all the CD-ROMs), for instance, is only about 250 objects. So you could add four times the detail or have four Maybeck Studios and do all that with DesignWorkshop Classic.
In this particular case with several hundred colums it sounds like you may reach the 1,000 object limit of DesignWorkshop Classic depending on the amount of other detail in the model. DesignWorkshop Professional has no object saving limit and can save models of any size.
