I will report on joint work with Michael Weiss (https://arxiv.org/pdf/1503.00498.pdf):

Let K be a subset of a smooth manifold M. In some cases, functor calculus methods lead to a homotopical formula for M \ K in terms of the spaces M \ S,  where S runs through the finite subsets of K. This is for example the case when K is a smooth compact sub manifold of co-dimension greater or equal to three.
