I’m
currently working in wind energy applications. I would like to export
an elevation map from ArcView and import it to WAsP (The Wind Atlas
Analysis and Application Program). The formats that the program
supports are Ascii XYZ, .ntf, .mat, .dxf basically. Anyboady has any
idea how can i do that using only ArcView?

Is this ArcView 3 or 9? How is the elevation map formatted?

I
don't know the details, but I think this won't be easy... It will need
some additional software, script or plugin. Do you have Spatial Analyst
for ArcView?

Yes
I have the Spatial analysis tools and 3d analysis for ArcView 9. My
elevation model is in Raster (grid) format and in Shapefile. I also
have WasP map editor and if you know any other application freeware
that can be useful. I don’t have WaSp utility programs either Surfer.

With
those things, it should be reasonably doable, I am not sure though what
exactly you have accessible, for instance in ArcToolbox. I am on
ArcInfo 9 (with all extensions), and I am workstation guy -- I would
have used gridpoint and then generate (I think).

It almost seems like you might want to convert the Grid to a Tin then export a DXF, but I have never used WaSp.
